Obama vs. 'Global Varming'

Obama left with little time to curb global warming

Obama on global warming:

"The time for delay is over; the time for denial is over," he said on Tuesday...

I thought 'de Nile' was a river in Africa. Where is Obama getting these wild ideas?

...after meeting with former Vice President Al Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on global warming.

Oh, him again.

The article goes on to add more pseudoscientific blather and breathless one-line quotes about impending doom. But, there is cause for hope that we will not, as a nation, be driven to ruin:

After years of inaction on global warming, 2009 might be different. Obama replaces a president who opposed mandatory cuts of greenhouse gas pollution and it appears he will have a willing Congress.

A willing Congress? What was the AP writer smoking when that was written?

President Bush realized the folly of reacting to the global warming hysteria. At the same time, he realized it would be politically imprudent to pooh pooh the idea we can do something about it. So, he took the smart course of action: He handed it over to Congress; a body that, as everyone knows, is biased towards inaction.
