We now have substantial proof that a politician can say absolutely anything, regardless of truth.
Unless of course, when they refer to him as a Climate Crusader, it's like one of those Bushism's in projection. I guess it is fair to say he is crusading climate, but he didn't claim to improve it.UPDATE

The Los Angeles Times has a series of articles about altered oceans and the damage being inflicted upon them primarily by the overuse of prehistoric fossil fuels. The oceans appear to be undergoing a reverse evolution killing larger species of sea life and sickening people. The oceans are becoming de-oxygenated with the growth of a prehistoric, highly toxic algae that dates back over 2.7 billion years.
In Kentucky, it has been proposed that carbon dioxide from coal be pumped back into the earth, called sequestering. Is this not a prescription for another environmental disaster that could leach into our fresh water supply and contaminate it? Historically, rivers have been known to run red with blood, probably a form of red algae.
