Waffles: America Is Back As Leader On Climate Change

Failed rented Democrat presidential contender is apparently applying for Jimmy Carter’s job as irrelevant pontificator, popping up now and then to make weird bloviations

After eight years of resisting cap-and-trade proposals as offered in the Kyoto Protocol, for instance, America is back as a leader on the issue of climate change and will press ahead with policy changes that address environmental and economic challenges that are now interlinked, according to Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.)

With scientific evidence weighing in favor of the idea that global warming is man made, it is imperative for the global community to shift away from dependence on fossil fuels and to a green economy as a matter of survival, Kerry said.

“You can’t be half-pregnant on this issue,” he said. “You can’t accept the science and say ‘yes, global warming is man made and yes, climate change is happening faster than the scientists in fact thought it was going to,’ and then not accept the same scientific conclusions with respect to what that impact is and what we’re already witnessing.”

Then he got in his big luxury car and went back to his really big mansion. Then try a little revisionist history

“We cannot repeat the mistakes of the Kyoto Protocol where disagreement over the structure resulted in the president signing a treaty the Senate would never ratify,” Kerry said. “We intend to be a full partner with the administration in defining the contours of a global agreement and leading the global community in addressing this challenge.”

Say, John? Weren’t you in that Senate that voted 95-0 against signing Kyoto? And weren’t you one of the Senators who voted that day? Yes you were! And didn’t President Clinton follow the Senate, and never sign the Kyoto Protocol and send it to the Senate for ratification, especially because it would decimate the economy over which he presided? That’s right, he did not sign it, Waffles. Al Gore signed it in a grand symbolic gesture, which, being the Vice President, had no force of law.

“It’s a very exciting time, it’s a moment we’ve been waiting for, for many of us, for some period of time – well, for eight years to be blunt,” he said. “We intend to pick up the baton and really run with it here.”

How did Waffles forget to include his own Senate vote? Huh? He was just going for a bit of BDS? Ah.

Now, let’s all go outside and see what below average temps feel like on the day before Thanksgiving.

  1. It’s been over a month since I first started telling you all about the coming opportunities in carbon trading. Since then, there have been some developments, not only in legislation, but in the amount of media attention being paid to this fledgling industry.

    Last Tuesday, Australian Prime Minister John Howard announced details of a proposed carbon-trading plan he hopes to have under way by 2011. And today, the Australian Climate Exchange opened, with carbon trading around $8.60 per ton.

    This is a huge ideological shift from one of the two fully industrialized countries that failed to accept the Kyoto Protocol targets for emissions reduction. The other, as you probably know, is the US.

    And then there’s the recent New York Times article, “In London’s Financial World, Carbon Trading Is the New Big Thing.” And boy is it.

  2. Keep in mind that Václav Klaus is set to take over duties in leading the European Union. We all know what he thinks of the whole Global Warming gambit.

    Klaus: “Global warming is a myth and I think that every serious person and scientist says so. It is unfair to refer to the United Nations panel. IPCC is not a scientific body: it’s a political institution, a kind of non-government organization with green flavor. It’s not a forum of neutral scientists or a balanced group of scientists. Its members are politicized scientists who arrive there with one-sided sentiments and one-sided tasks.
