Greens say Kyoto will not stop global warming

Well at least there are SOME honest liberals in the world. Why don't we hear this trumpeted on the news? Why don't more liberals read and understand this? Why will they not apologize to Bush for all their insults about the Kyoto agreement and how we, Americans, are so at fault and so evil. Read the story linked to the title. I just realized that thyis has been a prolific blogging weekend for me, I better take some time off......

Hi. Yes, that is a lot of Blogging. Good thing too. I've been up since 3 and needed something to do. Thanks.
The reasons why, as I understand, that Bush did not support the agreement are not the reasons for its stated failure, by those mentioned in the article. These Liberal think Kyoto standards are just too insignificant to make a difference. These Liberals are not apologizing to Bush. Actually they say some mean things about him. Now, maybe I am wrong, but have been lead to believe that Bush did not support Kyoto due to the costs to American companies, and a lack of ballance on the obligations by some other nations. Not on lack of impact.

Welcome back Ian, I was wondering where you were. I am glad I was able to help occupy your time. I changed my link to your site to reflect the Sonicist. Now to the subject at hand.
I still think Kyoto was an agreement that would have dragged America through the mud, economically.
This agreement was written (in my opinion) with the direct effect of pulling us down and using our money and resources to "fix" the worlds problems. The world wants us to take the lead on those things that are bad for us, and are critical of us on those things that are good for us. I honestly believe that the UN is anti-US. in all its aspects. I think Kyoto was a bad idea in the first place because of its expense vs benefit ratio, understanding that this is totally subjective and everyone will view the expense vs benefit ratio differently based upon their leanings, and that is fine.

Here is a taste;

"The Kyoto Protocol is a test to see if it is possible to have a global treaty to regulate energy and the environment," Corrado Clini, director general of the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Territory, told reporters Tuesday at an event just outside the United Nations' climate change conference (COP 10), where Kyoto's implementation is being celebrated.



"I believe this test is now in process, and the test is suggesting that maybe the Kyoto Protocol is not the best mechanism for addressing global reductions (of greenhouse gas emissions) and economic development," Clini said.

Sooooo, it was a test?????? I think we passed.....

Here is another site, and my wife is showing me how to hyperlink, cool huh!

Here is a taste;
"This story of U.S. climate partnerships remains one of the least explored by the media here, which has focused mostly on top down regulatory authority and the antics of demonstrators, rather than bottom up efforts that produce real gains.



You would hardly know that the Bush administration has engaged 14 countries -- that together emit 80% of human-produced greenhouse gases -- in bilateral partnerships to monitor and find ways to reduce those emissions."

Kyoto is bad for us...the UN is definitly an anti US group...and teh world court is badbadbad....and Bush is pursuing environmental cleanups....in fact, the environmental issue should be OWNED by the republicans, but it has been usurped by exrtreme leftists that tie the government agencies hands and keep them in court for years...long after too much damage has been doen....sierra club is right up there with teh ACLU is sheer evilness and stupidity.

From what I have read about the Protocol, it would basically punish the US for a little polution (okay, I might be exaggerating it), but would give China a free pass for unleashing tons of smoke. And no one is complaining about China, it is always the US's fault.

Yes Commadore, it is always the fault of the Americans in the eyes of the world and the eyes of liberals in our own country. One would think that they all want a return to the stone age. I really think it is a matter of jealousy really. Everyone wants to be like us but can't so they would just as soon take us down.

I bet thesefolks wish there was global warming.

And since it is on my blog, this is still relevant.
