There is no (greenhouse gas) spoon.

Once you get past the clearly terrible implications that signal for the \aleph_0th time the extent to which insatiable greed with no consideration for their effects on the world drives the Bush White House, this is pretty freakin hilarious.

In short: How does the White House respond to a Supreme Court ordered EPA report on whether greenhouse gases are dangerous polutants that need to be controlled? Well, by “telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, senior E.P.A. officials said last week.”

Furthermore, and not unexpected in the least, the White House (succesfully) pressured the EPA to remove the inconvenient parts that supported regulation.

So what do you do when your very own agencies tell you that the Clean Air Act (which you are against) would actually be a good thing in reducing Greenhouse gases? You pretend it doesn’t exist. Keep in mind, this is the very same Administration that sees itself as “[We are] an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.” Of course, when applied to this particular situation, the results are as ugly and detestable as they’ve been every other time this rationale has been followed.

Make sure to read through the article, towards the end, as if on cue, comes the revelation that the White House is once more refusing to release subpoenaed documents on grounds of “Executive Privilege.” I can’t wait for the rule of this would-be child king to be over.

Again, aside from the obvious rage-inducing, compulsive disregard for facts; the level of ridiculous-flavored stupidity keeps surpassing my expectations. I wish this was all fictional so I could laugh my ass off at the silliness of it all.
