Climate Change Is Official

The Bush-appointed head of the EPA now says Global Warming is happening:
Even more startling for an administration that has spent seven years in denial, Mr. Johnson acknowledged that “warming of the climate system is unequivocal,” that man-made emissions are largely responsible and that the consequences could be devastating — more wildfires, more droughts, rising sea levels, more intense hurricanes, more outbreaks of insect-borne diseases.
Unfortunately, like "Mission Accomplished," these statements may mean nothing for a long time322 days.

Bottom Line: The Bush Administration has blocked scientific evidence, policy debate and regulatory action for seven years. Although his oil buddies have done well in the short run, we are paying -- many times over -- in the long run. (They screwed the Public in the short run as well, but what's $500 billion among friends?)
