Bush Considering Global Warming Bill - UPI
Yep . . . Earth Day coming up, time to look like we're doin' something!!

WASHINGTON, April 14 (UPI) -- U.S. President George Bush may shift his eco-attitude as early as this week, saying he wants Congress to pass a bill to combat global warming, aides said.

While specifics are being debated, Bush administration officials said they think they need to act now rather than risk more regulation in the future, The Washington Times said.

"This is an attempt to move the administration and the party closer to the center on global warming. With these steps, it is hoped that the debate over this is over, and it is time to do something," a source told the Times.

Congressional members told administration officials that an environment-related measure could lead to runaway legislation in the Democratically controlled Congress, the source said.

in Wingnutville where there is no such thing as glaobal warming or even if there is it's due to high gasoline prices.

3. Well, it's UPI and the Moonie Times . . .
Kind of like The Onion without the sense of humor.

Nice to see their priorities haven't really changed. :eyes:

God knows the last thing we want to risk is more regulation!
