Bush's lip service on climate change

In my earlier post, I had discussed how USA is the most polluting country. The Americans are a small percentage of world population, yet the amount of carbon dioxide they contribute to the environment is greater than any other country. They are miles ahead at this. Yet the Americans go ahead & kill a bill that would restrict carbon emmisions.

The senate is bought over by the oil lobby & Bush himself has strong connections to them. The connections are so strong that he had pledged to veto the bill even if the senate were to pass it.

So addicted are the Americans to oil that kicking this habit is proving difficult. The electorate will be unforgiving to anyone trying to restrict the Americans from burning oil. The environment be damned!
