Only 10 months after becoming the radically pro-environmental green-the-world carbon crediting, capntrade president, Barack Obama has reduced the United States to environmental moron status, and China is the country we all need to be.
The irony here is rich. We apparently stink of carbon and no one likes us. Nice work, Todd Stern.
On the other, way more bizarre hand, UN Climate Czar Yvo de Boer is ready to award China front runner status in their weird little climate club, with ringing endorsements from Europe.
Because China is such a proven leader on environmental issues, right? Only a small portion of the countrys water supply is potableand by that, we mean non-lethaland the country uses a vast amount of coal for its energy production that will not magically vanish in the next 25 years. The entire place is an unenforceable environmental disaster, but because China maybe means well and makes speeches about climate change, the UN and Europe is gushing with glee.
Which is more proof that saving the world from environmental catastrophe is all about image, and zip about substance. Advice to the President: on your next speech, say America will certainly save every environment on the planet; that bit is obvious. And we can do it by eliminating all carbon in the world in just a few days, along with capitalism, while wearing a beret and sipping a glass of wine. This is all the UN needs to hear.
And all will be right again.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
