JAMES GLASSMAN looks at people who are exploiting Katrina for political purposes.

They're also scientific illiterates. More here.

UPDATE: Steven St. Onge isn't so sure that Glassman has the numbers right, though (see the link above) experts do seem to share Glassman's view. Mark Kleiman also sends a link to this letter in Nature, though it seems to be a bit speculative, and conflicts with the New York Times article quoted earlier. On the other hand, it's not like a NYT article is the last word.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Nick Gillespie is siding with Glassman and offers more links in support.
