Kempthorne blows hot air….(WP, 17-Mar-07)

News briefs, 17-Mar-07: The Bush administration will examine whether polar bears and other species are at risk from global warming and in need of federal protection, Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne said. “We have to ask ourselves that. And by ‘we,’ I mean not only those in the department but we the public, the policymakers,” Kempthorne told the Associated Press. “The president has put very strong emphasis on this, to examine this whole issue of climate change.” Kempthorne would not specify how the effects of global warming on possibly threatened species might alter the administration’s opposition to mandatory reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases.
