"No President has ever done more for human rights than I have.”
The New Yorker

"We need an energy bill that encourages consumption."
President Bush

"Natural gas is hemispheric. I like to call it hemispheric in nature because it is a product that we can find in our neighborhoods."

After the Long War President’s administration deleted or ignored data that did not fit or please corporate and petroleum-based policies (and cronies), the Decider now sounds like a born-again environmentalist.
After destroying Iraq in order to save the world from WMD that its dictator did not have, the Decider continues to escalate destruction in the name of saving the United States and the world from terrorists and enemies who did not reside in Iraq before his Shock & Awe Pre-emptive war.
Although the Decider is not altering his mistaken melody on the Iraq war, he has changed his tune on the global environment...
About 6 years too late!
During his reign the Decider has sent previous environmental laws to hell.
Oil cartel friends got what they wanted to keep their profits climbing.
It is hypocritical for the Decider to now suddenly voice his concern for the environment after his policies have ignored it for six years.

In a ferocious three-year attack, the Bush administration has initiated more than 200 major rollbacks of America's environmental laws, weakening the protection of our country's air, water, public lands and wildlife.
The attacks began on Inauguration Day, when President Bush's chief of staff and former General Motors lobbyist Andrew Card quietly initiated a moratorium on all recently adopted regulations. Since then, the White House has enlisted every federal agency that oversees environmental programs in a coordinated effort to relax rules aimed at the oil, coal, logging, mining and chemical industries as well as automakers, real estate developers, corporate agribusiness and other industries.
Bush's Environmental Protection Agency has halted work on sixty-two environmental standards, the federal Department of Agriculture has stopped work on fifty-seven standards, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has halted twenty-one new standards.

The Bush administration has repeatedly intervened to distort or suppress climate change research findings despite promises by the president that, “My Administration’s climate change policy will be science-based.”
Despite the widespread agreement in the scientific community that human activity is contributing to global climate change, as demonstrated by the consensus of international experts on the IPCC, the Bush administration has sought to exaggerate uncertainty by relying on disreputable and fringe science reports and preventing informed discussion on the issue. As one current EPA scientist puts it, the Bush administration often “does not even invite the EPA into the discussion” on climate change issues.

NEW YORK, Feb. 10 -- James E. Hansen, the NASA climate scientist who sparked an uproar last month by accusing the Bush administration of keeping scientific information from reaching the public, said Friday that officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are also muzzling researchers who study global warming.
"It seems more like Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union than the United States," said Hansen.
