President Bush, in a victory for the forces of darkness, managed to scuttle the negotiations over implementing the Kyoto treaty for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. As everyone except the president is aware, greenhouse gases are responsible for causing global warming, which will soon begin to fry the earth and its denizens to a nice crisp. Global warming has also been proven to increase hurricane intensity and rainfall. (via Think Progress)
In related news, a monstrous motherfucker of a hurricane (again via Think Progress) is making its way to Florida, intent on causing death, destruction and a spoilt orange crop (oranges cost money no).
Oh and in other related news, the 2004 hurricane season was the worst ever for the US.
