GAO Chides Government on Warming
Interior Department spokesman Chris Paolino said he could not comment on the GAO report because he had not read it, but he noted that Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne established “a department-wide task force” on climate change this spring and is awaiting a final report from the panel next month. Kempthorne instructed the task force, Paolino said, “to look at the potential impact of climate change on Interior Department lands and to develop procedures and policies to proactively and reactively respond to those impacts.”
One wonders how the GAO avoided the scourge of Bush ‘appointees’ regulating their access to the press and vetting their reports.
Thus far, the Government Accountability Office is (everywhere) our best and only source of what the hell is actually going on in our country.
The downside of that is it’s for the most part, a disaster on all fronts.
