Bush dedicated to the environment

Or not. Take this from yesterday’s New York Times:

“A White House official who once led the oil industry’s fight against limits on greenhouse gases has repeatedly edited government climate reports in ways that play down links between such emissions and global warming.”

This news coincides with a statement by the US National Academy of Sciences and 10 similar organisations from some of the world’s most powerful nations urging immediate action on greenhouse emissions. The only groups supporting the Bush administration are ideologically driven, anti-environmental fools and the energy industries. The LA Times reports: “…the Bush administration appears firmly entrenched in its position that mandating reductions in greenhouse gases would hurt the U.S. economy.”

Future generations will simply have to suffer, or so it seems. The Court Jesters may understand one day. Then again…
