Stefan Jones sends word of this NYT piece on how the Bush Administration is finally admitting that there might be something to that greenhouse stuff, after all.
The good news is that this should nudge loose some more intelligent debate in the Capitol about how to keep from frying ourselves.
The bad news is that, in a startling coinkydink for folks who were asking for regional climate data in the comments section of my post on biomimicry, smart breeding and the Great Plains, the report warns of hard times ahead for farmers:
"It also says the accumulating emissions pose newly identified risks to farmers, citing studies showing that carbon dioxide promotes the growth of invasive weeds far more than it stimulates crops and that it reduces the nutritional value of some rangeland grasses."
The whole thing's up here.
