Et Tu, Captain Ed?
Over at Captain's Quarters, Captain Ed takes the media to task for misrepresenting the history of the Kyoto Protocol. Just to prove, though, that a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth, the Captain, in the course of correcting NPR, states that "Bush formally withdrew from Kyoto." In fact, as long-time readers of the secret blog know, we've never withdrawn from Kyoto. For that matter, we're even making decent progress towards our goal: since 2000, US greenhouse gas emissions have risen by less than the G8 average.
