“oops.. a little bit of politics there…”
An article in Rolling Stone magazine that comes via Think Progress about how Cheney bypassed ‘clueless Bush’ (the word ‘clueless’ is always associated with him now isn’t it ?) and pushed forward with a secret campaign to deny global warming:
Cheney Bypassed Environmentally â€˜Cluelessâ€™ Bush To Craft Administrationâ€™s Climate Change Agenda
In a comprehensive report this week, Rolling Stone magazine investigates the Bush administrationâ€™s â€œsecret campaign to deny global warming.â€ The article documents the administrationâ€™s repeated attempts to use â€œcooked intelligence,â€ stay beholden to big industry interests, and stifle internal dissent on climate change.
The report highlights Dick Cheneyâ€™s surreptitious role in developing Bushâ€™s pro-industry climate agenda, arguing Cheney took â€œfull advantage of the presidentâ€™s cluelessnessâ€ on climate change. Rolling Stone argues Bush played along with Cheneyâ€™s arm-twisting, which culminated most recently in his decision to bypass the G8 climate resolution.
Oh and also this week he decided that he was above the law.
