I was watching what I can regarding the world economic summit trying to keep abreast of the situation and what they are trying to do and I came across this.
In it Billy boy pretty much lays it out in plain English and set some things straight.

I wonder how Russians and the Chinese feel about what he said about even more investment in the US to get the world economies flowing even after what they have stated already at this summit.

It's a refreshing view that I hope many will watch I know I learned from it and hopefully you'll get something out of it. With out further ado. We'll chat after let me know what and how you feel.

I think his stance on whether the environment will loose out to the global economy seems fair but will it happen?

I agree there is a lot of money to be made in conversion especially here in the US but will big oil allow it?

Well I'm not sure they are going to come out of this smelling like roses and if everybody thinks the US will fall apart I think that their countries are much thinner ice and are more susceptible to internal crises.

stay tuned folks the next 12 to 18 months should be interesting

Vlad the Impaler

I'll wager even Bill Clinton did a little squirming.



Vladimir Putin’s speech at the opening ceremony - Snip

In the last few months, virtually every speech on this subject started with criticism of the United States. But I will do nothing of the kind.

I just want to remind you that, just a year ago, American delegates speaking from this rostrum emphasised the US economy’s fundamental stability and its cloudless prospects. Today, investment banks, the pride of Wall Street, have virtually ceased to exist. In just 12 months, they have posted losses exceeding the profits they made in the last 25 years. This example alone reflects the real situation better than any criticism.

Clinton Climate Control Legacy

"“We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions ’cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren.” - BC Jan 2008



Not to worry, I think your grandchildren will do just fine.

We desperately need to grow our economy Bill. As a result of short-sighted energy policies, we can't grow GDP without an equal increase in oil consumption. As president you were anti-drilling...you strongly supported the environment...Kudos!...but also you initiated a plan to renovate thousands of aging nuclear war.s in clear violation of the START II arms reduction treaty....

but failed to renovate our dying nuclear energy industry?

Can't have your cake & eat it too Bill.

"The notion of a static, unchanging climate is foreign to the history of
the earth or any other planet with a fluid envelope. The fact that the
developed world went into hysterics over changes in global mean
temperature of a few tenths of a degree will astound future
generations."
Richard Lindzen, Professor of Meteorology MIT and Member
of the National Academy of Sciences

Good point he does try to adress some of those issues in the video. I cant help but get the impression that he is a salesman for America watch the video again and with that in mind tell me what you see.

From your post it leads me to think that China is .ed for a great depression. They will have to blame someone, we have done nothing but line their fricking pockets for a century, many many times over the trillions they claim we owe them.

They do not want to mess with us or we will bring it all home and then America and its allies will indeed prosper when we no longer have to cut them in...
