White House Again Obstructs Climate Change Science

The Bush administration has again obstructed the working of international climate change science. This time it was leaking drafts of the secret fourth report by a working group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The draft report which is to be finalized in February of 2007 finds that global warming is likely to have increased the severity of tropical storms and that greenhouse gas concentrations are at their highest atmospheric level in 650,000 years. It is hypothesized that the Bush administration leaked the document on a government web site to discredit IPCC findings with which it frequently disagrees, or that it is trying to mute the significance of the findings by dragging out their release. In any case the Bush oil cabal has sunk to new depths of duplicity in obstructing science and policy to avert a global climate crisis. Shame, shame, shame on Bush.

    When Mr. Bush ran for office, they bragged, they had 250 million in his (War Chest). We are now seeing 250 million dollar's worth of corporate favor's, being handed out. This is a bought Administration with the faith of the people and the planet at risk. This is nothing more than ( Criminal Negligence ) at an alarming scale ! As i stated in an earlier Post, it's up to the people to take charge and demand action. The E.P.A. under this Administation is nothing more than a figure head. They collect less than half the fine's they issue , it's a joke. Companie's are breaking every enviormental standard they can and the E.P.A. look's the other way. I deal with these people, i see it everyday , it's pathetic. This Administation, is the lowest piece of garbage that ever was in office, and it's about time all American's realize it! After all, it's only your children's future that's at stake.

    So let me get this straight – obstruct science by publicly posting it? Seems like a stretch to me.
    Oh, and let's not forget that the Clinton administration's own EPA followed a similar procedure of inviting the public to comment on previous drafts of the IPCC's Assessment Reports. See one such Federal Register notice for yourself.
    C'mon guys, you're going to have to do better than this!
