Bush ain't here to push around...

Just read the article below titled "Allies abandon U.S. at climate confab". The Obama administration sent a large delegation to this global climate conference and Europe and all those other countries that have been trashing Bush for not doing enough, didn't show.

One has to wonder if now that Bush isn't here to push around and blame for nothing happening (even though he was a global warming believer), the true feelings of these other countries are showing. As long as they could point a finger at the United States and Bush as the big bad boogie (or is it bogey) man they had an out. Now they have a U.S. President who's bending over backwards to move forward and they aren't there.

That's not to say that by the time the big conference rolls around in three months that they won't have their act together. Maybe they'll have another bad guy to point a finger at by then. Or maybe it'll be time to put up or shut up.

I've read enough on both sides of the global warming issue to believe it's a bunch of hogwash. Yep, put me right up there with the flat earthers all you global warming believers. I was rather young, but I do remember when everyone thought we were heading to a frozen earth. I remember picturing the United States covered in ice... I'm all for cutting back on emissions, cleaning up the earth, I recycle and am a vegetarian... I'm a tree hugging conservative but I can't swallow the global warming hype. Anyway, here's the article. We'll all see in three months what happens.

Allies abandon U.S. at climate confab
GENEVA Western nations that spent the past several years slamming the Bush administration for not doing enough to deal with climate change were conspicuously absent from a recent global climate conference.
The Obama administration sent a large entourage to the third World Climate Conference in Geneva earlier this month, trumpeting the return of the United States to the climate change debate.
