This is more appropriate fodder for the kick-ass Bright Green Blog over at the Christian Science Monitor, but I can’t resist.
A while back, the Supreme Court ordered the EPA to determine whether greenhouse gases posed a threat to the environment. The EPA did the necessary work and concluded that, yup, they did.

Or, as the New York Times puts it:
The White House in December refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, senior E.P.A. officials said last week.
I suggest the EPA headline its next report “Bin Laden determined to attack inside US.” Oh wait — that won’t work either.
