Okay, let's get the kitty pic out of the way first:
I love the ear thing she's doing here. Like she hears something behind her.
Now, it was a very long night last night at the Red Room with the local scooter club (an excellent and diverse little group of people, very likeable, friendly and very dedicated) so I'll make my point as succinctly as possible.
Isn't it just the teeniest bit ironic that all those hand-picked "scientists" and "economists" on Bush's side claimed that any Kyoto-like changes would serve no purpose but to cripple the U.S. economy, when our negligence to recognize the warming of bodies of water like, oh, the Gulf of Mexico, has led to more numerous and more powerful hurricanes than ever that are knocking out ports, chemical plants and oil refineries, effectively putting the economy into a tailspin?
Let's run through that again:
Bush administration: "Kyoto will damage the U.S. Economy."
Reality: Failure to take action against global warming is damaging the U.S. economy.
A little too ironic, yeah, I really do think.
