Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


My friend Carlos points out that additional attention needs to be focused on that other leaked Washington memo.

From the Observer article:

The documents obtained by The Observer represent an attempt by the Bush administration to undermine completely the science of climate change and show that the US position has hardened during the G8 negotiations. They also reveal that the White House has withdrawn from a crucial United Nations commitment to stabilise greenhouse gas emissions.

The documents show that Washington officials:
  • Removed all reference to the fact that climate change is a 'serious threat to human health and to ecosystems';
  • Deleted any suggestion that global warming has already started;
  • Expunged any suggestion that human activity was to blame for climate change.

It's another example of this administration creating their own reality rather than doing the work and dealing with the problem at hand. Shameful.
