Tin Foil Hat Time

Maybe, finally, an explanation for Shrub's obstinate refusal to do anything about global warming: Arctic Thaw Could Open Vast Oil and Gas Region snip:

REYKJAVIK (Reuters) - An accelerating thaw of the Arctic may open vast regions for oil and gas exploration but that brings worries of spills in the fragile environment, experts said Thursday.

Scientists behind an-eight nation report saying the Arctic sea ice could almost vanish in summer by 2100 because of global warming said offshore oil and gas operations would be easier but melting permafrost could destabilize installations on land.

I've become such a cynic.
