The EPA & GWB

Climate change puts US way of life at risk: EPAReuters
Published: Thursday July 17, 2008


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under fire for apparently discounting the impact of climate change, on Thursday said global warming poses real risk to human health and the American way of life.

Risks include more heat-related deaths, more heart and lung diseases due to increased ozone and health problems related to hurricanes, extreme precipitation and wildfires, the agency said in a new report.

The study comes on the heels after an off the cuff remark from President George W. Bush at a G8 summit last week, where he ended a private meeting with the quip, "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter," before punching the air.

The EPA doesn't agree.



OMG.......only six more months to go with that doofuss as 'leader of the free world'.

Sorry, but this just irked me to no end.

January can't come fast enough. I am so scared about the situation that our country is in right now.

Well, seeing as how I suspect the new President is going to be tested by another big terrorist attack, I can stand the wait. January can take its own sweet time getting here. But I suspect it won't.

The parties are already running McCain and Obama ads and they haven't even been nominated yet.

It's a portrait in miniature of how it seems to me our President has treated his Presidency: it's all a big joke.

lol @ "The American Way of Life". I could come up with a few reasons why that SHOULD end.

As for GWB, he's proved time and time again that he hasn't the intelligence to run a burger van, let alone a major country. It also proves that the millions who voted for him in the 04 elections are as stupid as he is.

err where've you been? Even living 3000 miles away, I know that they have been nominated...

Plus, I'm sure if another attack does happen, the US military will go and invade Iran.

Nominations aren't official until the democratic and republic conventions coming up. That's why you hear that stupid phrase "the presumptive nominee" all the time.

I live 3000 miles away, how am I supposed to know

It also amazes me that it takes 2 months to move house (essentially, that's all it is isn't it?

Hugh, a lot of people HERE don't know that!

And that two-month period? That's why he's considered a "lame duck" president from the time of the election of a new president until the swearing in.

But he's actually been lame for about 8 years.
