Condi said what?

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said climate change is a real problem, and world leaders should forge a new global consensus on tackling it. Condi went on to say; At the talks in Washington, Ms Rice said: "Though united by common goals and collective responsibility, all nations should tackle climate change in the ways they deem best." She challenged leaders to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels by moving toward energy sources that would reduce global warming - but without harming their economies. So,,any thing goes so long as you don't hurt the economy? Condi is part of the worst administration maybe in history on the environment but the statement in itself is vague because when it comes to the environment the record speaks for itself. Here is a link below to the NRDC who maintains the record from 2001-2005 on Bush policies affecting the environment. A poll posted in the Houston Chronicle showed that Americans do not buy the improving the environment speech, Only about one in five voiced approval of how President Bush, Congress and U.S. businesses have been handling the environment. And while decisive majorities said they want strong public and private action, fewer than one in 10 said they had seen such steps in the past year, according to the poll by The Associated Press and Stanford University's Woods Institute for the Environment. Nearly six in 10 Republicans said there would be serious problems if global warming is not addressed, and more of them said the environment is worse than a decade ago — and will be even worse in 10 years — than saw improvements. Found a need blog out in the blogosphere with some interesting numbers and how if we could put those numbers to work we could improve a lot of things here at home including the environment;Every day George Bush and the Republican run Pentagon spends $720 million on the falsely justified, failing and futile occupation of Iraq. That is $500,000 every minute. Money that could EVERY DAY buy homes for almost 6,500 families or could outfit 1.27 million homes with renewable electricity or health care for 423,529 children.

  1. It will just be great when this administration is walking out of the doors of the White House.

    Does Condi know anything about the world, or is her efforts centered on her hidden love affair with Bush?

    Hey Larry now you got me thinking, I don't want to get on a long crusade but America needs to get back to diplomacy and find it's strength back in the world stage, as it once enjoyed. To open up talks and bring countries to the table to air differences, would be a tremendous help, however, I don't see that happening anytime soon.
