A change in Rhetoric

Nancy Pelosi returned from Greenland and announced that she saw climate change happening! Not Global Warming, but Climate Change. ROFL.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) said Monday she led a congressional delegation to Greenland, where lawmakers saw “firsthand evidence that climate change is a reality,” and she hoped the Bush administration would consider a new path on the issue.

Um……climate change is reality. Do these people not take history courses??
In other news from the same article, history gets rewritten as it becomes George W. Bush’s fault that the US has not signed onto Kyoto vs the entire Senate back in 1997 when they voted to let President Clinton know that Kyoto didn’t have a chance in hell of getting passed. (this vote included all the Democrats and all the Repulicans present. 97)

rejected that accord, saying it would harm the U.S. economy and unfair excludes developing countries like China and India from its obligations. Pelosi, who strongly disagrees with that decision and many other of Bush’s environmental policies, said Friday she said she wants to work with the administration rather than provoke it.

In the meantime while scientists continue to pretend they can predict the weather with accuracy a report shows that we’ve had bad hurricane seasons before now. Studying soil samples for the last 5000 years…..

what he found may have profound implications for our understanding of the effects of global warming on violent storms. The frequency of fierce storms that sweep into the Caribbean and onto the Puerto Rican island of Vieques varies considerably. There are stormy periods and more placid epochs — and they alternate back and forth.

I’m all for reducing pollution/emmissions/bad stuff in the air/reliance on the Middle East and Venezuela. We really should do it honestly though. Not by fear mongoring “climate change”.

UPDATE: I searched for this story earlier but couldn’t find it quickly. (I wonder why)

U.S. carbon dioxide emissions dropped slightly last year even as the economy grew, according to an initial estimate released yesterday by the Energy Information Administration.

The 1.3 percent drop in CO{-2} emissions marks the first time that U.S. pollution linked to global warming has declined in absolute terms since 2001 and the first time it has gone down since 1990 while the economy was thriving. Carbon dioxide emissions declined in both 2001 and 1991, in large part because of economic slowdowns during those years.

  1. It IS a mystery that something good that could possibly be a result of the current administration is so hard to find…..but, gee, with that powerhouse of intellect and authority, Cindy Sheehan, stepping down, I guess anything could happen.

  2. This maybe a secret, but I will divulge it here anyway….there is a major climate change program the Bush Administration coducts every year, it’s called SPRING! I build a snowperson (very PC don’t you know) and then it warms up and ugh! No more snow!

    Thankfully we have jets to fly the Speaker on Memorial Day to watch this climate change. Hey, perhaps next year, she might look out the window!
