Bush blocked Global Warming/Hurricane report
According to the journal Nature, "The Bush administration has blocked release of a report that suggests global warming is contributing to the frequency and strength of hurricanes."
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claims that it wasn't a blocked report, it was just a "fact sheet" and it just wasn't finished in time for the May press kit.
You'll forgive me if I find this a steaming pile of bullshit.
Were the administration not bruised by the Katrina catastrophe they helped cause -- and continue to inflame -- and were they not allergic to science that might force them to rein in their corporate benefactors, I might buy it. Sure.
And one other thing. If NOAA wasn't able to get it's s**t together in time to turn out a 2-page fact sheet on something that could effect the lives of many thousands of people when the "Earth within whisker of hottest climate in million years," according to NASA.
