Bush admits global warming
I didn't see this anywhere else on DU, so I didn't know if y'all knew about it or not.


It's pretty huge.

2. Probably just Dick Cheney farting next to him
Bush thought the sudden increase in room temperature was from global warming. At least that's what Cheney told him.

4. Now he can begin stalling on what to DO about it.
Should be good for another decade or so of inaction.

5. He needs his father to form a study group.
Then he can ignore something in writing.

8. HEre is an excerpt from the article:

WASHINGTON - In a landmark decision, the Bush Administration has concluded that global warming is endangering the existence of the polar bear - an admission that could force the United States Government to act to curb the emission of greenhouse gases.

In a sharp reversal from its previous position, the Government has decided the iconic creatures should be listed as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act because of the widescale melting of Arctic sea ice - the bear's prime habitat.

The decision by the Department of the Interior has huge implications that go beyond the survival of the polar bear; the 1973 law not only requires the Government to come up with a recovery plan for the bears but also prevents it from "enacting, funding, or authorising adversely modify the animal's critical habitats".

Campaigners said the decision provided the bear with new protection and opened the way for widespread legal action to force the Bush Administration, which has rejected the Kyoto Treaty, to limit emission of carbon dioxide and other warming gases.

9. I don't see where it says that Bush admits anything.
To me it appears to be saying that the Department of the Interior are the ones who've declared that polar bears are threatened. For all we know, Bush is royally pissed that they've done so (if he's even heard about it yet).
