It would be sad if my blog became entirely political over the next few months, we shall see.
A friend of mine (Hi Claude!) points out that the Bush national security policy that holds that we can’t wait for a clear unambigous signal that X is a threat before we apply a can of preemptive wop-ass to X clearly leads to the conclusion that now is the time to get down and dirty on Global warming.
I suspect that this only goes to show that the current national security policy is missing the footnote explaining that these rules of engagement only apply if the experts happen to agree with our preconceived notions on the topic at hand. Actually I’m not sure that experts are required, just notions.
