This is precisely why W cannot leave office soon enough for me...
President George W. Bush Wednesday called for growth in US greenhouse gas emissions to be capped by 2025, but was attacked for his "grossly deficient" strategy against climate change.
Despite having abandoned the Kyoto treaty on climate change, Bush said the world's biggest polluting nation had shown it was serious about reducing growth in planet-warming gases such as carbon dioxide.
"Today, I am announcing a new national goal: to stop the growth of US greenhouse gas emissions by 2025," he said in prepared remarks from a speech.
As if onerous, environmental regulations don't cripple American undustriousness enough already. Just once I'd like to hear a politician stand up and say, "Are you people idiots? There's no such thing as global warming. And we are not ham-stringing our own economy and plunging our country into third-world poverty to appease environmental nazis like Al Gore who stand to gain billions from it. America stands, as always, for industrialization, progress, innovation, and riches beyond belief, and that's how she shall remain. You can follow us or get out of the way, but you will not stop us with climate-change, carbon-cap insanity." Just once!
I love the smell of CO2 in the morning. It smells like American innovation and wealth.
