U.S. Chooses Oblivion

Well, this has come to be a perennial international climate heating conference, all Western nations save one agree to specific emissions controls.

“Logic requires that we listen to the science,” said Stavros Dimas, the European Union’s environment commissioner. “I would expect others to follow that logic.” (C'mon, Stavros, don't you realize you're dealing with the US, or more correctly, Idiot America? Science is viewed with suspicion here)
