Global warming? What global warming?

It should come as no surprise that the Bush administration is once again pretending that if you don't talk about global warming, it will somehow go away. The Washington Post reports that the administration is trying to block any policy recommendations from scientists involved in a major international study detailing the dire effects of global warming on the Arctic. (See my previous post on this report and on a government scientist who dared to speak out about global warming.) Eight nations with Arctic territory including the United States teamed up with six indigenous tribes to produce the four-year study.

According the Post, "One European negotiator said the administration is trying to 'sidetrack the whole process so it is not confronted with the question, 'Do you believe in climate change, or don't you?'"

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies.
