  •  What I see is that (12+ / 0-)

    the administration has been taking full advantage of the anti-science climate that has been created by the Owners for the last decade at least.

    I saw a diary today that talked about how the EU is dismayed at the disregard for science, especially concerning climate change, in the U.S.

    And then, the oil companies want to drill in the Antarctic. So we find that the Obama administration has been accused of hounding scientist Charles Monnett so it can open up the fragile region to drilling by Shell and other big oil companies.

    And there are so many other similar stories. So when I read that the State Department claimed this Tarsands pipeline was environmentally safe, I saw it as just another instance of corruption, greed, and the usual stomping on science.

      The Antarctic hasn't warmed up enough yet.  Wait ten or twenty years.  Then they will be wanting to drill in the Antarctic.
