To activists he's a one-man earth-wrecking machine. But George W. Bush thinks of himself as a conservationist.

And on global warming, the most controversial part of his green scorecard, Bush acknowledged back in June 2001 that the National Academy of Sciences believed climate change was "due in large part to human activity." The dispute is what to do about that warming. Bush thinks new technologies—not treaties—can save the day.


Bush has been aware of the reality of human activity and global warming but of course has done little to promote change during his tenure. It's business first and the earth last as a way of trying to bolster the economy at the sacrifice of nature and human lives, here and around the world. Spending on wars against man and nature is big business and the only way to balance the equilibrium of growth and decline. It is his way of trying to create an artificial bouyancy to capitalism and all its ills, as we reach the point of "Peak Resources" and now, like oil, must spend more in the search for more easy ways to make money.

Speaking of the dwindling planetary ecosystems, the latest from Greenland is that the Ice is retreating faster than speculated.

Quote:
new satellite data shows Greenland’s ice sheet is melting at a faster pace than expected. According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Greenland lost more than double the amount of cubic miles of ice than it is believed to have lost in previous years.
Better hurry and get greener GW and American business- it is happening and you're digging a hole faster than you can cover it up.

My god! Nothing is worse than traffic on a normal day in Washington DC (except maybe traffic in Boston), and Bush wanted to shut down the car pool lanes for an emergency trip to help racist George Allen in Virginia.

Urgent Fundraiser? Bush Wanted Carpool Lanes Closed
President Ends Up Taking Helicopter


POSTED: 7:40 am EDT August 25, 2006

WASHINGTON -- Talk about political gridlock.

Secret Service officials confirm to The Washington Post they tried to get the Virginia Department of Transportation to close down the carpool lanes on a highway leading out of Washington Wednesday so President George W. Bush could easily get to and from a fundraiser for Republican Sen. George Allen.

State experts who monitor traffic predicted a commuting nightmare, because they would have had to close down the lanes for much of the day for logistical reasons, so they denied the request.

Vehicles using Virginia's high occupancy vehicle lanes must have three or more riders from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Some hybrid vehicles and motorcycles are exempt.

The president traveled to the fundraiser by helicopter.

Allen has been under fire for a racist remark he made. He was caught on tape calling an American-born college student of Indian descent a "macaca," and saying, "Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia."

The White House said the president had no qualms about Wednesday night's fundraiser. However, a Democratic campaign spokesman said attending made it look like Bush was rewarding Allen's behavior.

Of course he was rewarding Allen's behavior. It's so much like his own behavior. Bush feels "comfortable" with people like Allen.....and that asshole bastard shill from NO named Rockey. That's one of the many reasons he won't meet with Cindy Sheehan. She's a million times smarter than he is, and a hundred million times more ethical.

Bush and Rockey standing together on the WH lawn was the best evidence for evolution gone backwards I've ever seen.

AND I think Rockey is a bit further back than even the W. Did he actually say that he wanted Bush in the WH for four more years or did Comedy Central put those words into his mouth? :shock:

Sheesh...what a dog and pony show. ( Sorry, D.Og's....)
