Gore fingers admin. at global warming conference

The United Nations has been meeting this week in Bali to negotiate steps industrialized nations will take to reduce emissions and combat global warming. Predictably, the Bush administrations delegation is doing what it always does block progress, stall for time, and undermine the process.

Yesterday, Al Gore was on hand, and didnt hesitate to take his countrys irresponsible approach to task.

My own country, the United States, is principally responsible for obstructing progress here in Bali, said Gore, who flew to Bali from Oslo, Norway, where he received the Nobel Peace Prize for helping alert the world to the danger of climate change...

Gore urged delegates to reach agreement even without the backing of the United States, saying President Bushs successor, who will take office in January 2009, would likely be more supportive of binding cuts.

Over the next two years, the United States is going to be somewhere it is not now, he said. I must tell you candidly that I cannot promise that the person who is elected will have the position I expect they will have, but I can tell you I believe it is quite likely.


In other words, Ignore Bush and strike a compromise now the United States can catch up once whats-his-name is gone.

Indeed, Gore drew a loud ovation when he reminded delegates that President George W. Bush has only one year and 40 days left in the White House.
