This year has been the fourth warmest year on record. The 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1990.
Yet, the Bush administration keeps insisting that we just don't know enough about global warming to act. Is it just willful blindness or is there something else going on here? Could it be related to heavy contributions to the Bush campaign from the coal and oil industries? Nah, that would be too obvious, wouldn't it?
Didn't the insurance industry give him money, too? They think global warming is a huge problem that's costing them billions. The coal and oil industries are the ones who benefit from doing nothing. I wonder if Bush contributors in the insurance industry think they're getting their money's worth.
