I just heard on the radio that Bush is outright reneging on the Kyoto
greenhouse gas accord because he won't risk U.S. jobs and there is an energy
crisis. Seems to me the energy crisis is one of consumption not supply. I
also don't think the U.S. as one of the richest countries in the world is in
danger of sliding economically into a 3rd world state any time soon. It is
evident that with an ex-oilman owing favours to the energy and auto
industries in power, the environment is going to be ignored for at least the
next five years.
