White House Releases Global Warming Report

After trying to weasel out of facing the facts, and under a court order, President Bush's top science advisors issued a comprehensive report Thursday that for the first time admits what every sane person already knows: that greenhouse gases from fossil fuel combustion "are very likely the single largest cause" of Earth's warming.

$20 billion in research was used to come up with this 271 page report (summarized here) , and for some odd reason, not a single one of Rush Limbaugh's talking points were discovered to be valid, thus demonstrating the Liberal bias of the Bush administration, which was finally forced to release this report.

Under court order.

Among the conclusions, delivered with perfect timing considering the epic midestern flooding right now, is that there has been (and will be further) overall increase in unusually high precipitation events and an overall increase in annual precipitation.

The 100 year flood now seems to be the 10 year flood.

Here is the ABC news report.

In other news, there was another casualty of the Midwest flooding seen floating down the Mississippi following the latest Newsweek poll which shows the racist, terrorist loving, America Hating- Barack Hussein Obama ahead by 15 points.

several scenes in Al Gores really scary movie were clips taken from the equally fictional "Day After Tomorrow" and as were fake as the image of McCains bus in the water. Gee whiz, if global warming ever really DOES happen, all we'll have to do is Photo Shop the images back to happier times.

btw, recent massive volcanoes have risen from the ocean floor deep under the Arctic ice cap, spewing plumes of fragmented magma into the sea, scientists who filmed the aftermath reported Wednesday.
The eruptions - as big as the one that buried Pompei - took place in 1999 along the Gakkel Ridge, an underwater mountain chain snaking 1,800 kilometres (1,100 miles) from the northern tip of Greenland to Siberia.
Scientists suspected even at the time that a simultaneous series of earthquakes were linked to these volcanic spasms.
But when a team led of scientists led by Robert Sohn of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts finally got a first-ever glimpse of the ocean floor 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) beneath the Arctic pack ice, they were astonished.
What they saw was unmistakable evidence of explosive eruptions rather than the gradual secretion of lava bubbling up from Earth's mantle onto the ocean floor...
