House of Lords Backs U.S Climate Stance

With all due respect to Tony Blair...ouch! And -- can you imagine it? -- Bush's climate stance actually has some defenders in Europe: The insanity that has pervaded the world consciousness is indeed formidable; it deludes its subjects to such an extent that it actually seems reasonable and desirable to squander hundreds of trillions of dollars on a global scheme to reduce temperatures by fifteen-hundredths of one degree C over the next century, and even that's wishful thinking. Would these same people be satisfied paying for a full price haircut that resulted in only one strand of hair being cut? (hat tip: JunkScience.com)
