Hooray for US


In another feat of objective journalism, The Guardian newspaper in Britain has an article titled “US ‘bids to water down global warming declaration’”. Apparently the US opposes, among other things, mandatory requirements to reduce total global greenhouse gas emissions to 50% below their 1990 levels by 2050, anointing the UN as the forum to tackle climate change and imposing a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions.

Of course opposition to a course of action that you think ill-advised (and all of these ideas are, I believe, terrible) is by definition ‘watering down’.
