Bush admits earth not flat

US President George Bush is now ready to concede that climate change has scientific basis, and that collective action is required over global warming. Until now, Mr Bush has adopted an intransigent position, insisting there is no scientific basis to conclude that there is such a phenomenon as global warming.

In related news, The Department of the Interior announced that without all that darned snow in the northern parts of the US during winter that we’ll all get more work done and that global warming is thus good for business so we shouldn’t do anything to prevent it from happening.

Rumors that Halliburton has secretly bought up all the sun screen lotion companies in advance of the just-leaked Bush initiative, “Mandatory SPF-40 Protection for All” are probably false, as is talk that Cheney is linking opposition to this initiative to terrorism.
