AGW Today: It’s All Clinton’s Fault

In an article that reminds me more of an editorial, AP Seth Borenstein makes a mistake

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore. Now it is a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can’t avoid.

Since Clinton’s inauguration, summer Arctic sea ice has lost the equivalent of Alaska, California and Texas. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton’s second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it.

So, it is all Clinton’s fault for ignoring the danger of AGW as it started. Good to know. Remember, all you SUV haters, it was Billy Jeff who enacted a serious relaxation of the rules regarding SUVs and pickup trucks. Bush 41 allowed some, but, they really took off under Clinton and that guy who was his VP, who apparently did zip.

And the 10 hottest years on record did not occur since 1996. At least Seth didn’t go with the disingenuous talking point that it was Bush who blew off Kyoto, rather then Clinton and a Democrat led Senate. Rightly so, in my opinion.

The rest of the article is about how Obama needs to “do something,” but it will be hard to “do something” because of the danger to an already damaged economy from “doing something.”

Scientists are increasingly anxious, talking more often and more urgently about exceeding “tipping points.”

“We’re out of time,” Stanford University biologist Terry Root said. “Things are going extinct.”

Interestingly, no mention of the thousands upon thousands of scientists in all different disciplines who believe that AGW is vastly over-inflated or a pant load. I wonder why? Ah, that’s right, because they do not buy in to the doom and gloom.

Maybe the Barry Admin should consider more nuclear plants, which seem to be saving the American crocodile.

    I guess Terry Root, the Stanford University biologist doesn’t believe in evolution and dinosaurs.
