I don't think it's hyperbole to say that Dick Cheney is trying to destroy the world.
Seeking to play down the effects of global warming, Vice President Dick Cheney's office pushed to delete from congressional testimony references about the consequences of climate change on public health, a former senior EPA official claimed Tuesday.
The official, Jason K. Burnett, said the White House was concerned that the proposed testimony last October by the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention might make it tougher to avoid regulating greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.
In other words, protecting his buddies' oil interests is more important to him than protecting the public's health. Thanks, Dick!
