[greenyes] Climate Disruption - Bush Administration Research Criticized by GAO


NEW YORK TIMES




April 22, 2005
Climate Research Faulted Over Missing Components
By ANDREW C. REVKIN

he Bush administration's program to study climate change lacks a major
component required by law, according to Congressional investigators. The
program fails to include periodic assessments of how rising temperatures may
affect people and the environment.
The investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, conclude in a
report to be released today that none of the 21 studies of climate change
that the administration plans to publish by September 2007 explicitly
address the potential effects in eight areas specified by a 1990 law, the
Global Change Research Act. The areas include agriculture, energy, water
resources and biological diversity.
Without such an assessment, the accountability office said, "it may be
difficult for the Congress and others to use this information effectively as
the basis for making decisions on climate policy."
