When a countries administration says Global Warming is a fact...

Then there MUST be a problem, and whose administration says this? George Bush’s!!! The Bush administration released a climate change assessment on Thursday -- four years late and pushed forward by a court order -- that said human-induced global warming will likely lead to problems like droughts in the US West and stronger hurricanes. See HERE for the details of how climate change has affected water, agriculture and biodiversity in the U.S. already and what future predictions are, and in the washington Post, see HERE.

The Western areas of the U.S. will face especial problems due to a growing demand for water coupled with a drop in water supplies as the mountain snows and reservoirs dwindle.

As Anthony C. Janetos, director of the Joint Global Change Research Institute of the University of Maryland and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory said, "People imagine all these ecological impacts are in some distant future, they’re not in some distant future. We’re experiencing them now.” As if to echo that point, below is pictured Amy Hosch at her brother-in-law's home after a tornado struck in Parkersburg, Iowa.

I don't even know what to SAY in regards to this report put out by my country's govn't. It just astonishes me how incredibly, insanely out of touch the politico's who rule our country ARE with reality and the world. It makes me want to laugh AND cry, reading this report, but neither feels like a truly good response. Suffice it to say, words just cannot express how I feel for the brain-power displayed over the last 8 years by the president of my country and his administration.

And not just your countries administration Kati. Over here there has been a little talk but 100% less action over the years, nothing has changed. They are still running like collective lemmings to the edge of the cliff clutching our childrens future in their hands.
