Good freakin’ gravy. It’s all just one big fat joke to this guy.
President George Bush signed off with a defiant farewell over his refusal to accept global climate change targets at his last G8 summit.
As he prepared to fly out from Japan, he told his fellow leaders: “Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.”
President Bush made the private joke in the summit’s closing session, senior sources said yesterday. His remarks were taken as a two-fingered salute from the President from Texas who is wedded to the oil industry. He had given some ground at the summit by saying he would “seriously consider” a 50 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2050.
Thanks for the serious consideration, George. Your special brand of leadership–particularly when you take your show on the road–fits in totally with our status as the world’s biggest polluter. And it also indicates that, like so many of the worst industrial offenders to whom your administration has given carte blanche, you’ve never been taught how or required to clean up the foul plume you leave in your wake.
