    It looks like W is going to pass the Global Warming to the next president.

    With just months to go before Bush makes way for his successor, the US president on Wednesday once again confirmed that waiting for number 44 is the way to go. Bush called for the US to halt the growth of greenhouse gas emissions -- but only in 2025. As the San Jose Mercury News wrote on Thursday: "Allowing emissions to rise for the next 17 years is not a plan; it's an abdication."

    Europe, not surprisingly, tends to agree. German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel called Bush's presentation a "Neanderthal speech," and said it represented "losership, not leadership. European Commissioner of the Environment Stavros Dimas was also critical. "President Bush recognized the need for mandatory federal legislation to tackle climate change," he said. "But what he proposed will not contribute to the effective tackling of climate change."............

    Maybe he figures that 2025 is the year he will be released from prison and he wants clean air to breath.

    honestly global warming is the least of our problems.

    the first and major issue is energy. if we don't find something to greatly supplement oil and replace it then we're in trouble.

    energy places a major part in the economy, food production, and even war as countries battle for access to the supply.

    and if you decrease oil consumption then the environment will get better

    What Global warming? Temps are down over the last 10 years.


    The equations used in the models to create the scare were wrong.

    The whole thing is a scam to get gov funding and for schemes to trade carbon credits, Enron for greenies.

    the global warming scandal. i wonder if we look back in 20 years and say "how could we have been duped like that." after many scientists have recently come out and said that CO2 has nothing to do with warming and then the revelation that there has been global cooling, i say we go back to burning the trash in a 50 gallon drum like my parents did when i was a kid. everything went into that drum and they burned it all. just kidding, but me having to pay 700 dollars to get my emmissions on my car fixed is mostly caused by the bull sh!t lie of global warming.

    Not to mention that these same people/types of people were predicting an ice age not that long ago.

    The earth warms and cools. I don't see what the problem is.

    Please don't call it "Global Warming" my furnace has been running since last August and it snowed at least three times a week from Thanksgiving until two weeks ago (April 8).

    Climate Change:
    Hot in Summer
    Cold in Winter
