Those scientists and their silly "experimental results"

It appears that scientists are making a new push to get legislation passed on global warming reforms. According to this article from CNN, the science academies for Britain, France, Russia, Germany, the U.S., Japan, Italy,Canada, Brazil, China and India have all signed a joint statement calling for the immediate reduction of greenhouse gases and "recognize that delayed action will increase the risk of adverse environmental effects and will likely incur a greater cost." Despite this overwhelming statement of support from the world leaders in science, I'm sure the Bush administration will just dismiss this as more scientific hocus pocus.

"The current U.S. policy on climate change is misguided...The Bush administration has consistently refused to accept the advice of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. The NAS concluded in 1992 that, 'Despite the great uncertainties, greenhouse warming is a potential threat sufficient to justify action now,' by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases." - Lord May, president of Britain's Royal Society
