Bush Under Siege on Climate
For seven years the Bush administration has used every tool at its disposal to obstruct efforts to address climate change [search]. Now this immoral do nothing climate policy is threatened by both a renewed national push by the Senate to reduce emissions through a trading system [ark | more2ark2], and an united international community demanding the United States engage in post-Kyoto negotiations [ark] in Bali. Bush and other Republicans resist mandatory emission cuts on the basis of alleged economic costs and using the red herring that poor nations were not also required to cut emissions. The Bush cabal has lied about the science and obstructed national and international efforts to meaningfully cut greenhouse gas emissions. In pure ideological delay-tactics, Bush spokespersons assure us that the Senate action will not lead to Bush embracing an international program of emission cuts [ark]. What a dumb man that knows no shame.
