Bush: polar bears will be killed by global warming, so drill!

Chris in Paris, You can't even make this stuff up it's so bad. The Bush administration isn't concerned about the new laws protecting oil companies related to the impact on polar bears because hey, they're going to die from global warming anyway, so just let Big Oil be Big Oil and do what they do. Then, the administration pretends (as Republicans always do) that industry will somehow monitor themselves when it comes to the impact on polar bears. Really? What is the incentive for them to do so? What is the penalty for fudging the numbers, as they will?
Big Oil is going to look back at these times as the golden years, when every wish and every dream came true. Hell, they even got the oil field rights they wanted in Iraq. For the rest of us, well...
