"A close read of the National Research Council's review reveals major structural flaws in the Administration's plan. The plan is missing major elements of any scientifically sound plan to deal with climate change. Those essential but missing pieces include - 1) a system to detect dangerous climate change before its too late, 2) a method for choosing least-cost options to avert warming, and 3) constant updating of the national and regional assessments of the impacts of warming. If the Bush Administration won't try to stop global warming, they should at least be more relevant by helping the public understand and adapt to impacts from the rising sea-levels and increasingly severe weather changes.
