Cheney - No Consensus on Man-Made Global Warming

I suppose from someone of the stature of Dick Cheney, it's all you could expect.

The Vice-President gave an interview today to ABC News, during which he expounded on his views of global warming:

"I think there's an emerging consensus that we do have global warming. You can look at the data on that, and I think clearly we're in a period of warming. Where there does not appear to be a consensus, where it begins to break down, is the extent to which that's part of a normal cycle versus the extent to which it's caused by man, greenhouse gases, et cetera.

"But I think we're going to see a big debate on it going forward. But it's not enough just to sort of run out and try to slap together some policy that's going to "solve" the problem."

Hey Dick. "Consensus" means general agreement and even someone as intellectually dishonest as you has to accept that there is indeed a consensus on the man-made, greenhouse gas questions. Even among your government's own scientists there is a clear consensus.

Can this guy ever tell the truth?
