The Cult of the Environmentalist Blames the Right for Katrina

"Seems like everything is President Bush's fault. One day after Katrina hammered the Gulf Coast, German commentators are laying into the US for its stubborn attitude to global warming and Kyoto." (Spiegel Online)

"As Hurricane Katrina dismantles Mississippi's Gulf Coast, it's worth recalling the central role that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour played in derailing the Kyoto Protocol and kiboshing President Bush's iron-clad campaign promise to regulate CO2." (Huffingtonpost)

Is this a joke? The deep south is reeling from catastrophe, and these guys are saying that Bush's and/or a Mississippi Senator's environmental policy is to blame? If the religious right in this country were to say something of this ilk about the tsunami or this hurricane, there would have been a global uproar against it, yet this goes unnoticed?

The thing that makes me the maddest is that right now, Germany should be offering aid, but instead, they are offering unfounded and undue criticism for environmental policy as if the last 6 years have made the difference. In 1969 Camille packed winds at a whopping 190 miles per hour and ripped the Louisiana coast, and 1992's Andrew is on record as the costliest Hurricane ever. Were those also our environmental policy?

The extreme Liberal Left has proven again they will use anything to push their agenda. Hurricanes happen. Worse have happened, and more will happen. To try and lay this disastrous event at the foot of a single person or to imply that any policy is to blame is absolutely shameful at best. I can only hope that someone will confront these people in the public eye. This needs to be exposed.
