Global Warming Science Not In?

On April 23rd 2008, former Florida governor Jeb Bush said that he is skeptical humans are causing global warming, stating he is "light green" on the environment. According to the AP, Bush said that global warming activists "are acting out of something like religious zeal." " I don't think our policies should be based on emotion; they should be based on sound science," said Bush.

The A.P. says hundreds of Environmental Protection Agency scientists say they have been pressured by superiors to skew their findings. Francesca Grifo, director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Scientific Integrity Program, said the survey they did revealed an agency in crisis and under siege from political pressures especially among scientists involved in risk assessment and crafting regulations.

Yes Jeb, I agree our policies should be based on sound science. Why don't you get your brother in the White House to stop interfering in the work of scientists. It's no wonder so many people are confused.
