Why Is The Sky Falling? US Won't Pay To Find Out

The government's ability to understand and predict hurricanes, drought and climate changes of all kinds is in danger because of deep cuts facing many Earth satellite programs and major delays in launching some of its most important new instruments.

2006 Fifth Warmest Year on Record

Despite beginning the year with a chilling La Niña, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) advises that 2006 was the fifth-warmest year in recorded history and the hottest year in the U.S.

Check the attached graph and see if you buy the Dr. Bob Carter's contention that global warming ended in 1998.

White House Officials muzzle hurricane/climate change expert

In their continuing battle to obfuscate on the issue of climate change, a series of e-mails has been uncovered that shows White House officials successfully barring the public appearance of a NOAA hurricane expert who, along with most of the scientific community, believes that increased hurricane intensity is attributable to climate change. Here is a copy of the letter from Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) to Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez that describes the muzzling. And here is a copy of the e-mail that Rep. Waxman uses as evidence.

A big hat tip to ThinkProgress.org for revealing this. When will the US administration pull it's head out of the sand and start dealing with this issue? Until they do, no amount of this osrt of PR spin will make up for  their lack of credibility. The best PR always begins with doing the right thing.
