Even the most conservative President in the history of the United States, George W. Bush, is now admitting that Global Warming is the real deal and with this bombshell announcement via Secretary of State Rice, speaking for the Bush administration, where does that leave conservative radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh? To put it simply they are being left hung out to dry by President Bush. For years, Rush Limbaugh and other conservative radio talk show hosts have called the entire "Global Warming" movement a liberal conspiracy to take the U.S. government in a more liberal direction. However, with President Bush now siding with folks in the middle and on the left of this issue, many moderate Republicans like myself will start to consider more the science of this issue of Global Warming rather than the political hype that is made by Rush Limbaugh and others on conservative talk radio.
I must admit that I still have deep doubts as to the wisdom of "man made Global Warming" since the Earth has always been in a state of change from a cool environment to a warm one over a cycle of centuries. It has only been in the last 100 years or so that man was even able to calculate temperatures, year over year and how do any of us really know if the current warming trend is due to increase releases in carbon, by man, or is this just another one of those Earth cycles that seems to repeat itself over the history of the planet? I am not smart enough to answer that question and neither are most scientist that study this issue for a living. The biggest fact that keeps me from jumping on the Global Warming bandwagon happened when I was a kid growing up back in the 1970's. During that period of time I remember watching a show on PBS called "Nova" where scientist were claiming that "Global Cooling" would be the death of us all before the year 2000.
The biggest problem with science and scientist is that the whole issue of Global Warming has turned into a political "hot potato" over the years. That said, it is hard for people like myself to accept the word of scientist that are bought and paid for by the likes of Al Gore and other left wing liberals that care more about power than the truth on this issue. That said, if the most conservative President of the United States in history, George W. Bush, is now starting to side with the likes of Al Gore, then I must admit that there might be something to this issue of "man made Global Warming" and while it is very hard for people like me to believe that we humans are causing the potential destruction of our planet - I do still have faith in the word of George W. Bush and I will listen to what he and others in his administration have to say about this issue in the upcoming days. There are still issues that should transcend party affiliation and the state of our planet should be at the top of that list.
