Sen. John McCain who stumped for President George Bush during the election is back to his old form, criticizing Bush for his lack of concern over global warming. McCain plans to hold hearings on the subject and attempt to gain passage of a bill he and Sen. Joe Lieberman have been pushing that would require mild reductions in greenhouse gasses. About the pace of global warming, McCain is quoted by The New York Times as saying, "The Inuit language for 10,000 years never had a word for robin, and now there are robins all over their villages."
Well, he's exaggerating about the 10,000 years--it's more like 5,000--but you get the point.
