That Was Then, This Is Now

In case you missed it, every single sign from the Obama administration and its apologists in the global warming industry make clear that the U.S. will not agree to a Kyoto II in Copenhagen — or, as some rakes are now calling it, Kopenhagen — this December.

 

Possibly the most emphatic was the vow reported yesterday by “Climate Envoy” (I still get a kick out of that) Todd Stern, that, per ClimateWire: “the United States would be ‘powerfully, fervently engaged’ in global talks.”

 

Uh oh. Sort of like being 1000% behind one’s running mate when certain uncomfortable facts emerge. To be sure, many things about Kyoto have been coming to light given time and (relative) sobriety, thanks to the failure of this particular “we must act now!” hysteria to ram through that which doesn’t withstand scrutiny.

 

But this is the best, from the same Stern remarks:

“I don’t think anybody should be thinking that the U.S. can ride in on a white horse and make it all work.”

Ummmm . . .
