Why I Left The Right; Exhibit 87a

Right Wing blogs are aflame because Obama is devoting CIA resources to examining global warming.

Bzzzt.

What’s happening is that the CIA is sharing data they already have with climate scientists, reversing Bush’s cancellation of the previous agreement.

The monitoring program has little or no impact on regular intelligence gathering, federal officials said, but instead releases secret information already collected or takes advantage of opportunities to record environmental data when classified sensors are otherwise idle or passing over wilderness.

There could be some concerns about classification barriers breaking. But, no, CIA agents are not monitoring glaciers.

Guys? Do your fucking homework before you scream blue murder.
