Bush 'Flat Wrong' on Climate

"Delegates from around the world worked into the final hours of a U.N. climate conference to produce a plan for deeper cuts after 2012 in greenhouse-gas emissions, buoyed by a last-minute message of support from former U.S. President Bill Clinton."

"Clinton, in an applause-filled appearance at the Montreal meeting on Friday, said U.S. President George W. Bush was "flat wrong" to claim that reducing greenhouse-gas emissions to fight global warming would damage the U.S. economy. But the ex-president urged the negotiators from more than 180 nations to find a way to "work with" the current U.S. administration."

"Throughout the two-week conference, the Bush administration repeatedly rejected Canadian and other efforts to draw it into future global talks on emission controls, just as in 2001 it renounced the existing Kyoto Protocol and its mandatory cuts." [CNN]

You know what is going to hurt the economy? When the earth really starts going to shit, and it's too late. We're at a critical point here, and we can go either way. Mr Bush: I urge you to shed your hatred for all things science and those that disagree with your fundamentalism, and listen to real scientists. We are headed for a real disaster if you don't pull your head out of your ass. How is that 180 nations from all parts of the globe can come together and work towards trying to turn this around, but you reject their findings and ideas at every turn? Former President Clinton got it right; we can fight global warming and prevent damage to the US and World economies. But you have to throw aside your distain for what you call "junk science," and open your eyes! Maybe we should be moving towards alternate energy sources, instead of killing the earth with oil, coal, and non-renewable resources.
