Comment [on “Bush reversal of CO2 pledge draws heated reaction”]


  • Harrison H. Schmitt


I normally find Eos a very useful source of Earth science news. Mr. Showstack's piece titled “Bush Reversal of CO2 Pledge Draws Heated Reaction” (March 27, 2001) is primarily a report on reactions to the president's rejection of CO2 emissions regulation. Underlying his reports of the comments of others, however, is an unbalanced view of the science of global climate change which requires some protest. This imbalance is consistent with other Eos coverage of the issue, as well as that of others, including Science, Nature, and Science News.
