Arctic Change: Global - Global Temprature Trends
Calendar year 2009 was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, according to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) analysis of surface air temperature measurements. Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures, according to the GISS analysis. The past year was only a fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest year on record, and tied with a cluster of other years — 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 1998 and 2007 — as the second warmest year since recordkeeping began.
I liked republicans much better when they cared about the environment.

I honestly think if Obama is doing this truly with good intent than I am all for it and this is a +1 for me. I don't understand why many conservatives are upset with Obama doing this. If they are for more oil drilling in the US (as I am for as well) why does it matter who authorizes it? Conservatives and those supporting off shore drilling should be happy about this. If it's based on principal than we should be accepting this as a good thing and acknowledging that Obama made the right choice in our eyes. If it's about partisanship then just simply hate it because it was proposed by a man with a (D) in front of his name. I'm all for it regardless of who or whatever political party brings it to fruition.
