I can’t do much to improve on the humor of the two lead paragraphs in this AP piece:
The head of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday the growth of greenhouse gases by less than 1 percent in 2005 shows the administration’s program to address global warming “is delivering real results.” The pronouncement by EPA Administrator Dave Johnson brought a quick response from some environmentalists.
“Things have come to a pretty sad state of affairs when the EPA tries to spin increased greenhouse gas emissions as a victory,” said Frank O’Donnell, president of Clean Air Watch, an environmental advocacy group.
“Environmentalists,” you see, view a continuing rise in greenhouse-gas emissions as less than a triumph for Bush’s climate-change policies. Not, say, “awake people,” or “non-retarded people.” Just “environmentalists.”
