Climate Change, the White House, and Deception

So I’ve already been stewing with frustration at the White House lately. I’m not a big politics blogger. It’s too depressing, but when I become overwhelmed and feel the need to scream . . . I blog it.

While reading about the “Stonehenge’s Twin” this morning, I noticed a little quote in the sidebar:

“It appears there may have been an orchestrated campaign to mislead the public about climate change.”  ? CONGRESSMAN HENRY WAXMAN

What? Is he serious?

Yes, he is.

I find this so disheartening because our abuse of the environment boils down to greed and lifestyle choices. We have the technology, we have the ability, we have the money, we’re just unwilling to take the steps. Somebody, somewhere opposes climate change legislation because it will cut into profits, take away from the second home’s mortgage, or threaten a yacht.

Finding clean energy isn’t so hard. Efficiency is even easier. Vermont is moving toward “cow power,” which creates electricity through the methane produced by cow manure. It solves a lot of problems all at once. Our entire home, that is filled with energy efficient bulbs, is powered by cows.

For now we are afflicted with reports concerning this administrations deception of the public. First WMD, now the environment, what’s next?
