Bush Admin Opts out of New and Improved Kyoto Talks

The nations of the world will meet in Montreal this week to start discussing the next step in combating the global warming problem, hoping to devise a successor to the Kyoto Protocol that was scorned by the Bush administration in 2001. But the United States is saying it doesn't want to talk.

GOI: God they can't eve commit to TALKING AT LEAST?!!!

"Most people are ready to take the dialogue forward. The only place where that is not the case is the administration," said Eileen Claussen, president of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. Many advocates, analysts and policymakers are willing to move beyond the "one size fits all" approach of Kyoto, she added.

GOI: Most people are willing to move beyond Kyoto which one would think would bring the U.S. on board but that's not good enough for the Bushies. Their stance on climate control is like those stubborn people that refuse to go to the doctor and acknowledge that they are even sick.

They act like pouty, spoiled children.

Three thoughts:

One, maybe the Bushies see everyone else in Kyoto and us not as an economic advantage and who cares about the environment.

Two, Maybe as James Watt once said, the environment doesn't matter because Jesus is coming soon. Corollary: Maybe we're gonna run out of oil, or have a population reducing event in the next hundred years.

Three, perhaps they've got a study that says that US environmental damage would be minor compared to that of Asia, China, EU, etc.?

I just can't make myself believe they are so corrupt or so stupid they really disbelieve all the evidence. But, I am an optimist.

Mike:

Yeah, I think they really think the environment is doing just fine. I honestly think that they are living in a huge delusioin and just don't want to face the facts.
