Man Makes Movie - Should be President

MTLB relays the info that we're all supposed to be blogging green on Monday. I have plans to be away from blogability at that time, so here's my halfhearted leap at jumping on the Gore Train.

Here's a cool site about funky green architecture.
That's a converted water tower in Germany in the photo above.

There, I did my part. Now I'm going to drive my Hummer stretch limo in endless circles with the AC on high while I eat fast food and throw the trash out the window.

But seriously, if you think Bush not signing the Kyoto Protocol caused Hurricane Katrina*, then you should start making plans now to visit China and India to see if you can talk those countries into your plan to fix the world. Here's a list of the world's top ten most polluted cities. Not a US city in the bunch.

*I'm not a Bushman, but blaming him for global warming is about the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

  • Well said. Part of what keeps that cheap crap at walmart cheap is the lack of environmental regs holding china to our expensive standards. I work in the municipal water industry, and you have no idea how hard we push our local industries to keep their 'nose' clean

  • Well it's rather too easy to knock down a straw man when you set it up, wouldn't you say?

    No one blames Bush for global warming. No one. What he is legitimately to be blamed for is doing nothing about it.

    Bush's greatest failure is not fumbling the war on terrorists, nor starting an unrelated war in Iraq, nor his official anti-science, anti-truth policies of censoring reports and muzzling scientists, nor blowing a budget surplus and turning it into a massive deficit by funding his wars and tax welfare to the rich on borrowed money, nor being Cheney/Rove's sock puppet. His greatest failure is failing to launch the US on a "Marshall" plan to get us off oil and begin the transition to clean, renewable sources of energy. He had the opportunity in front of him - he could have got the ball rolling, provided leadership to the rest of the world, and gone down in history as a president with vision. Instead he dug in his heels, blocked any useful effort, and even launched a war to keep us on oil and keep us in control of dwindling oil resources - and so he'll go down as the worst president in US history.

    That's what he's to be blamed for. Nothing to do with "causing" global warming.

    Don't be lazy in your blog posts - it may make for easy blog-bites, but it's essentially dishonest.

  • Whatever, dude - or chick.

    Where did I set up a straw man?

    For a solid week before and after the Nobel, all the top news stories were "Will Gore run now?" and "Draft Gore."
