Mission Accomplished! Obama Finally Makes a Campaign Promise Good!

Okay...not exactly! First the promise:

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that … this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow.”
- candidate Barack Obama, June 3, 2008.

Now the fulfillment:

Climate scientists withdraw journal claims of rising sea levels


Mirabile dictu! Without lifting a finger or purchasing a single carbon credit, the oceans' rise may not be slowing, but they may not be rising as precipitously as some had claimed. I think that any administration that would count Bush's victory in Iraq as their own can certainly claim that mistakes in calculating the oceans' rise are as good as making them fall! I mean, the results are the same...right?

  1. The ocean levels are dropping---sounds like another ice age in the works. Only one thing makes the ocean levels drop---more ice forming somewhere, perhaps the north or south poles are makes a come back. The polar bears must be smiling!

  2. Somehow, I suspect that not rising to unrealistic imaginary levels based on junk science is not quite the same as "dropping".

    Mr. Gore: Thanks for playing!
