Even Bush's experts now agree on global warming

Federal Study Finds Accord on Warming.

>> A scientific study commissioned by the Bush administration concluded yesterday that the lower atmosphere was indeed growing warmer and that there was "clear evidence of human influences on the climate system." <<

Maybe the die-hards here will finally agree too?

... no better than a Sierra Club study AFAIC, no matter who sits in the White House. They're all gunning for research funding dollars, and right now that's in human caused global warming no matter how the "evidence" has to be twisted to show it. The only human effect is HUMAN life itself. Volunteers?

There's that nasty reliance on science and knowledge again.

Studies would be SO much easier if you started with the conclusion you wanted and worked backwards... Oh wait -- wee done that; it's why we're in Iraq! In this case, though, given that Bush commissioned the study, you know the result wasn't pre-ordained. Just like his earlier study, which was inordinately weighted with skeptics, yet still reached the same conclusion about four years ago.

... on whether DK will ever even read the executive summary, or rely on the NYT's hack job to do his thinking for him? There's much more in this first of 21 reports that the NYT's doesn't mention. And although there is mentio of human influence, it's not quite what the article implies. You would have to go to the source to find that out though.

days, post an item on global warming, or George Bush's poll numbers, etc. He never learns from responses to his previous posts. He just drones on repeating the same things over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over........

A quick read at the NYT ...
by Evie / May 2, 2006 11:50 PM PDT

... and the Executive Summary of the report shows that things are already not *quite* so definitive or groundbreaking as the NYT would lead one to believe. Surprised? LOL

Evie Happy

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
