Amazing, thought I, upon first read. And convenient too, for an administration that has consistently downplayed the dangers (and reality) of global warming. This is a predictable pattern with this gang: Don't adequately fund or legally acknowledge an issue and you can pretend a problem doesn't exist, i.e., if you don't teach sex education, teens will stop having sex; if you don't let gays marry, people will stop being gay; if you don't let women have abortions, they will stop luring men into sex with their wicked, wicked ways, etc. I think of it as the "If You Don't Buy an Umbrella, It Will Never, Ever Rain!" school of SimpleLand Leadership.
