Bush Subverts Bali Conference

But first I have to say this. The pope spoke out on the global warming issue a couple of days ago.  He called the current concerns “scaremongering” and said that it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement. Um, does the pope not realize that the environmentalists and the scientific consensus are completely in harmony here?

I do agree with the pope that in the case of this critical issue, we should base our decisions and policy on science, not dogma.

Therefore, your emminence, since you don’t have any idea what the hell you are talking about, know nothing about the science (but lots about dogma), please steer clear of this issue and go back to doing what you do best – raising mogore_bali_1213.jpgney and trying to convince people that they should live in the 15th century, not the 21st.

Anyway, despite overwhelming support for emmissions targets, the Bush cartel, with their usual bullshit excuses, refused to budge knowing that to do so would be to step on the toes of a few rich people. And we can’t have that.

Al Gore pointed the finger at the US and said what everyone else there already knew.

 “My own country, the United States, is principally responsible for obstructing progress here,” he told a packed audience at the U.N. climate change summit in Bali. “We all know that.”

 Then, in an effort to give the rest of the world some hope he referred to the end of the Bush administration when he said,

“Over the next two years, the United States is going to be somewhere it is not right now,” said Gore. “We are going to change in the U.S.”

 Carl Pope, president of the Sierra Club, called the U.S. performance

“the most explicitly irresponsible action that any American Administration has taken in any of our lifetimes.”

Quoting Time, “Observers here say the U.S. obstructive role has been more egregious, stymieing attempts to craft meaningful action on everything from deforestation to measures to help developing nations manage their carbon output.”

“The U.S. has been fingered as the problem here — and they really are,” says John Coequyt, climate adviser for Greenpeace.

John Kerry summed it up nicely when he said what we all know to be true. 

“The Administration is isolated in its own country.”

And there we are. Bush against the world. Do we really have to wait until this maniac leaves office? How much further does he have to go before people stop believing his crap and take action against this insane administration?
