I'll show you pollution, you don't even know what pollution is!

Hot Air and Global Warming, an opinion piece by Derrick Jackson of the Boston Globe, contrasts the views of James Connaughton (dir of env quality) and British economic minister Gordon Brown. Basically Brown says, see post from earlier today, that global warming is very important and we have to do something about it. Connaughton still hasn't accepted the well-established fact that humans are changing global climate.

Jackson says Bush acts like an adolescent in the face of climate change. He refuses to acknowledge it, and does everything he can to make the problem even worse, like a modern-day Nero.

Again, this has nothing to do with the science, but with the interpretation of science by politicians beholden to other powers. Those powers, in this case, are Big Oil and the automotive lobby.
