Well, now, if that don't take the cake. The UN, in its preponderance of stupidity claims that a cloud of soot and chemicals, obviously caused by human activity, is "a threat from global warming." Wow! The cloud is caused "from global warming", instead of vice versa.
So, according to the bright folks at the UN, if we stop global warming, that will prevent any further countries from polluting the atmosphere.
I think they have it backward. As usual!
Here's a thought for that prestigious bunch of international jokers - the cloud is obviously originating from the same countries that, according to the Kyoto treaty they want us to sign onto, would be exempt. So, even with Kyoto, those countries will still be creating those clouds, and global warming. So, what's the point of Kyoto?
The point, for those of you who may have missed the fine print, is not to fight global warming. Rather, it is to punish countries that are already industrialized, and have already taken vast measures to have clean air, while the polluters are left to go on polluting. America, the cleanest of the industrial nations, would be forced to shut down much manufacturing in order to comply. The manufacturing, which must still occur somewhere, will be done in these uinrestricted countries, resulting in even greater pollution.
America would lose jobs. America would be forced to spend billions. And China and India can take over as the industrial leaders of the world, polluting as they go, and raking in all the money.
If just a few short years, it will be China and India who will be the world leaders, and America would be reduced to third world status. America will have been hog-tied.
With Obama as president, and a democrat congress, you can count on them signing onto the Kyoto treaty, which will - I repeat, WILL be the downfall of America.
