Is global warming skepticism melting in the White House?

Am I the only one that finds this abrupt turnabout on global warming just a little scary?
The Bush administration has decided to propose listing the polar bear as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, putting the U.S. government on record as saying that global warming could drive one of the world's most recognizable animals out of existence.
I mean what did they find out to cause the complete reversal of their previous position? This administration has moved mountains of propaganda to cover up the reality of climate disruption and all of sudden they're worried about polar bears? The poor critters have been drowning in the melting polar ice pack for years already, so why now?

It's not that I'm complaining about the change. It's long overdue, but I figure they must have read something really bad in all those reports they keep suppressing to cause this sudden concern.

Bushco is able to make this statement in an attempt to satisfy environmentalists but they are still not changing their stance that there is no evidence that global warming is caused by fossil fuel pollutants. We all know that they don't give a shit about polar bears. This is just an opportunity to try to appear environmentally concious while not changing their agenda at all. Even as a lame duck, Bush will do nothing to disturb the oil cartels(like sign Kyoto) and he will leave other administrations the job of changing our energy policy.
Bottom line - he's an asshole, environmentally and otherwise and we all get to suffer for it.

Brian! I was getting worried about you. Glad to see you here. You're right of course but I still wonder why they decided to worry the bears now.
