Does he think we're dumb or something?

I don't know which is scarier - George W. Bush doing nothing about the environment, as he has for the past seven years, or George W. Bush trying to save whatever shreds of dignity could ever possibly be salvaged from his abortion of a Presidency by all of a sudden pretending to care about the environment.

Either way, we're still the losers.

Simian-in-chief took minutes away from his Pablum to deliver a "global warming address" in the rose garden of the White House. Finally, Droolcup Jones has admitted that global warming is a reality. But, what does he propose we do about it? Pretty much nothing.

Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, Bush acknowledged that climate change is a problem but called for a slow approach to dealing with it that wouldn't raise taxes, burden American businesses or be run by judges working off the Clean Air Act, which he says wasn't meant to address climate change.
American businesses HAVE to assume burden during this process, or we won't be changing anything, moron.
He offered no new initiatives to cut the emissions. Instead, he spoke of an "economy-wide strategy that builds on the solid foundation that we have in place," such as recently passed legislation that raises auto fuel-economy standards to 35 miles per gallon by 2020 as well as tax incentives for private research and new technology to attack the problem.
The foundation that we have in place does NOT address global warming. That's why it needs to change.
A consensus report last year by more than 2,000 scientists from around the world called for stronger measures to slow the long-term accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said that to prevent average global temperatures from rising more than 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit — the level it set as a danger zone — global emissions would have to peak by 2015 and decline to as little as 15 percent of 2000 levels by 2050. The panel is affiliated with the United Nations.

To keep temperatures from rising above 3.5 degrees, the panel said, industrialized countries would need to reduce emissions by 25 percent to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. The European Union has recommended doing that.

Bush's goal would allow emissions to be 28 percent above 1990 levels in 2025, according to calculations made by the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group, that are based on U.S. government projections data.

"In his eighth year, the president has just proposed a path on global warming weaker than the campaign pledge he made in September 2000 and broke three months into office," said Frances Beinecke, the council's president. "Not content with blocking action over the last eight years, this president is trying to lock in pollution growth for the next 15."
As the governments of the world convened at yet another pointless "climate change" talk that will ultimately resolve nothing, George W. Bush's plan was almost unanimously assaulted as thoroughly worthless.
"The president gave a disappointing speech," German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a statement issued in Berlin headlined "Gabriel criticizes Bush's Neanderthal speech. Losership, not Leadership".
We've had at least three major "climate change" panels in the past year, all of which have been almost detrimentally derailed because of the United States' continued efforts to stop progress.

He has undermined the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to do its job, defying the Supreme Court in the process. He's chipped away at the Endangered Species Act. He's determined to rape what little pristine land we have left for some project or another. Basically, he just plain sucks.

And through his "global warming address," he's proven once again that he cares more about money than he does about you, me, the little fluffy clouds, babbling brooks, bunnies, kittens, ponies, ducks, or frogs.

Well, thank goodness his time's almost up. He can come up with all the little gaywad, ineffectual plans he wants - it is of little consequence.

No matter which of the three candidates gets elected, it is a confirmed fact that they are committed to curbing global warming. Even Mr. "Clean Coal" McCain's environmental stance is remarkably more liberal than Mr. Chimpy's.

So give him the boot and bring on someone who actually gives a damn. Nice try, Dribbles, but we all see right through you.
