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.
