The National Academies Addresses Climate Change

On May 19, 2010, the National Academies posted a press release titled STRONG EVIDENCE ON CLIMATE CHANGE UNDERSCORES NEED FOR ACTIONS TO REDUCE EMISSIONS AND BEGIN ADAPTING TO IMPACTS.

It would be good if Virginia's Attorney General Cuccinelli could inform the public about what our great scientists are learning instead of spreading Gazprom propaganda that appeared in RIA Novosti after it was first published in Alisher Usmanov's Kremlin-friendly business daily Kommersant.

Do Virginia voters know that Cuccinelli's suit against the EPA cites propaganda published in a Russian newspaper owned by Alisher Usmanov, a Gazprom mogul who has an education and career pattern that suggest he had a relationship with the Soviet-era KGB?

Do Virginia voters know that Cuccinelli's dad spent his career as a gas lobbyist? Do they know that one of the the father's companies gave Cuccinelli's campaign 96,000 dollars?

Do Virginia voters know that the elder Cuccinelli has "European" clients? I sure would like to know if these "European" clients are Russian fossil-fuel companies and if they are sponsoring American politicians who attack the science of global warming. We need some transparency about our politicians, but instead Cuccinelli suggests that our scientists are frauds who are promoting global warming so they can get government grants. Cuccinelli's canard reminds me of the KGB lie that "crafty" Pentagon scientists made AIDS to kill black people.
