It is true that a lot of green energy initiatives happened under Bush, even as he blocked the Kyoto Accord. But I believe the reason was 'energy independence', not climate change.

He probably doesn't deserve that specific award.

“I like to say we’re counting the cards in Mother Nature’s casino,” Titley said.“We have great weather prediction capabilities; now we’re working on using it to help people make decisions.”

Bill Brune, the head of the meteorology department for 15 years, said it took more than a decade to get together all the necessary pieces of the center, including the weather prediction technology and funding.
