Rogue president continues same

Greenland ice cap breaking up at twice the rate it was five years ago, says scientist Bush tried to gag.

A satellite study of the Greenland ice cap shows that it is melting far faster than scientists had feared – twice as much ice is going into the sea as it was five years ago. The implications for rising sea levels – and climate change – could be dramatic.

Yet, a few weeks ago, when I – a Nasa climate scientist – tried to talk to the media about these issues following a lecture I had given calling for prompt reductions in the emission of greenhouse gases, the Nasa public affairs team – staffed by political appointees from the Bush administration – tried to stop me doing so. I was not happy with that, and I ignored the restrictions. The first line of Nasa’s mission is to understand and protect the planet.

Remind me again how the torture-loving science-hating religious fundamentalist Bushies are different from the Taliban they so loudly and bellicosely oppose.


  1. The Stop Global Warming Virtual March is a non-partisan effort to bring all Americans together in one place to prove that global warming is here now… and, it is time for us to do something about it.
    One person can can change the world. Over 275,000 people have already joined. Imagine what millions of marchers can do! Together we will be heard.
    Join the March Now!
    Its easy! – No cost, No hassles. There is every reason in the world to become a virtual marcher. Why? Because it affects our public health, our national security, our economy, our planet’s future.
    On Earth Day 2006, the March will arrive in Washington, DC and use the strength of our numbers to urge 1) Our government to join the rest of the world in addressing global warming, and 2) American business to start a new industrial revolution on clean energy products that reduce our dependence on oil and other global warming pollution.

  2. Some interesting figures concerning the land of the free.
    There are over 2 million people confined in prisons all across the United States. The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world. There are more prisons in the states of Texas, California, New York, Missouri, Florida and Illinois than the whole world combined.
