Cooling on warming

July 11, 2008

At least the administration is ending on a high note:

The Bush administration on Friday rejected regulating greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, saying it would damage the U.S. economy and cause too many job losses.

In a 588-page federal notice, the Environmental Protection Agency made no finding on whether global warming poses a threat to people’s health, reversing an earlier conclusion at the insistence of the White House and officially kicking any decision on a solution to the next president and Congress.

It’s hard to get too excited, since “the next president and Congress” will be sure to shove the “solution” down our throats. Both Obama and McCain are  onboard the global-warming train, and Congress will be chocked full of Democrats. Disaster has been postponed, not averted.

    There’s always Dr. Paul.

    The Pauls are marching down Constitution Avenue – natch – to the Washington Monument tomorrow morning. It’s the R[EVOL]UTION MARCH. Dr. Paul will lead the march, and with any luck, they will have some marchers dressed as colonials. They plan to pass out copies of the constitution. They also hope to have pickets at the Federal Reserve.

    And the Wonkettes are meeting at the Tune Inn, a dive, at 9:30 AM for a drinking party. They actually start serving at 8 AM, if democracy makes you especially soberthirsty. After drinking for a bit, then meet the Pauls at the Capital at 11:00 or 11:30 for five minutes of snapshots. It’s supposed to be sunny, so you might want to wear a bucket hat.

    The address for the Tune Inn is 311 Pennsylvania Avenue SE. If you’re coming, the Wonkettes would appreciate an email warning them. Send it to tips@wonkette.com and use the subject line “HOT NAKED FLAPPERS”.

    A delicious map that will remind you of Now We Are Six.
