When is this guy gonna learn??? Will it take a massive natural disaster to hit the US before he acts?? a truly hope not.

But he conceded that the issue was one "we've got to deal with" and said human activity was "to some extent" to blame

Some extent? SOME EXTENT???

Come one Bush... wake up!

Wake up yourself. Signing this agreement isn't going to do didly squat. What is going to help is scientist and engineers out there working around the clock to make an affordable car powered by the hydrogen fuel cell. Honda plans to launch the first line of production by 2006, more like 2010 if you ask me. Innovation and technology will cut back on greenhouse emmisions, not some overzealous socialist treaty.

Bush is correct to say that "to some extent" mankind is to blame. We don't know how big a portion we play if at all. Listen, the earth has been experiencing climate changes for millions of years, and only recently has mankind been around, so it is not fair to point to Bush's remarks and claim that he has not woken up. Whether we humans exist or not, this planet will continue to go through climate changes.

Bush is correct, I certainly don't want to entangle the U.S. in a treaty for pollution reduction that will cost our economy billions while offering very little in real benefits.

Investing in new technology is the way to go, but it can't be legislated (or wished) into existance.

Bush signing any treaty is meaningless. All treaties must be ratified by the Senate before they are in effect.

The U.S. Senate unanimously rejected Kyoto (and were correct in doing so). Sen. John Kerry voted against it, and said in his campaign last year he was still against it.

The EU doesn't care whether any of their member nations follow through with treaty commitments or not. Ireland, Spain, and Greece all signed and have already missed the timetable targets, and show no effort to comply. Russia signed because under the treaty they are allowed to increase emissions.

The U.S. is at least being honest about it -- not like the rest of the world that signed on in great fanfare and chest-beating then ignored the whole thing.
