Fiction Writer advises Bush on Global Warming

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Greenland is melting, polar bears are drowning, earth's tempature is rising, but have no fear. Your president is getting scientific advice from novelist Michael Crichton who doesn't believe global warming is real. This really sums up the whole approach to science by the Bush White House:

In his new book about Mr. Bush, "Rebel in Chief: Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. Bush," Fred Barnes recalls a visit to the White House last year by Michael Crichton, whose 2004 best-selling novel, "State of Fear," suggests that global warming is an unproven theory and an overstated threat.

Mr. Barnes, who describes Mr. Bush as "a dissenter on the theory of global warming," writes that the president "avidly read" the novel and met the author after Karl Rove, his chief political adviser, arranged it. He says Mr. Bush and his guest "talked for an hour and were in near-total agreement."
In a sick way, this just makes sense. Ignore the facts and the science. Just pretend. When it comes right down to it, Bush doesn't know the difference between fact and fiction anyway.
