Of course you do!

So go ahead and watch Vermont Congressman Peter Welch show his lawyerly experience as he cross-examines former oil industry lobbyist Philip Cooney who left the American Petroleum Institute to become chief of the Bush White House Council on Environmental Quality!

I’m not making this up. Who would believe it?

And the dude could sure edit! Especially if it was a document produced by our top climate-change scientists warning us about the inevitable.

Watch for yourself right here.

What this guy did was....criminal!

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
