Politicized Science, the delta smelt, and California farmers

U.S. District Court Judge Oliver W. Wanger declared that testimony from two Interior Dept. scientists, Frederick V. Feyrer and Jennifer M. Norris, was “false,” “contradictory” and “misleading”  and that the Interior Department acted in “bad faith”  in regards to the use of the delta smelt fish and the endangered species act to stop water flow to California farmers.  More at Instapundit, the New York Times, and the San Francisco Examiner.
