I was listening to NPR a few mornings ago when NASA administrator Michael Griffin made his jaw-dropping comments re. global warming. So much of what he said was wrong, wrong, wrong, but this really sums up everything wrong about the Bush years:
I guess I would ask which human beings â€” where and when â€” are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate that we have right here today, right now, is the best climate for all other human beings. I think thatâ€™s a rather arrogant position to take.
The most arrogant nation is history is already deciding â€” here and now â€” to alter the global climate in pursuit of power and profit. Bush America is already claiming the privelege to decide global matters without reference to the opinions of others and in direct opposition to actual scientific findings.
