Denial on Climate Change, Again

Here's something to think about as gas hits $2.50 a gallon and the Bush administration continues to roll back environmental policy from clean air to national forest protections.

Benign neglect, you say? But wait! The administration is actually taking action: It is silencing NASA's top climate change expert, according to The New York Times, continuing its head-in-the-sand, pro-Big Oil War on Science.


Keep in mind that the Bush-Cheney apologists on conservative talk radio claim that human beings could not possibly cause climate change. The administration flacks' proof (sic) is that cloud-seeding efforts to produce rain have failed.

Hold that nonsequitur in place as you read the Times piece, knowing that alot of people think they are hearing facts on conservative talk radio.

Any wonder that there is a growing body of credible evidence about the reality and danger of climate change - - but that it is being ignored by administration policy makers and their ideological echo chamber?
