Global Warming

GLOBAL WARMING….I don’t know if this represents wishful thinking on the part of Tony Blair or a genuine change of heart from George Bush, but the Guardian says that Bush is about to get religion on global warming:

George Bush is preparing to make a historic shift in his position on global warming when he makes his State of the Union speech later this month, say senior Downing Street officials.

….Bush and Blair held private talks on climate change before Christmas, and there is a feeling that the US President will now agree a cap on emissions in the US, meaning that, for the first time, American industry and consumers would be expected to start conserving energy and curbing pollution.

Color me massively skeptical. Remember how last year we were addicted to oil? Remember the sweeping changes Bush proposed to deal with that? Me neither.

Still, it’s an interesting tidbit and I thought I’d pass it along.
