The once proud phrase “American Can Do” and know how has now been replaced with “America Can’t Do” and have not a clue how to do it if you choose to listen to the Bush administration when it comes to making the right choices about global warming. It would appear countries who do not have the same vast resources as the United States can do what this administration says it can’t.
On Friday July 12, the Bush administration Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) simply said in so many words ‘making changes would cripple the economy.’ The Bush administration has no doubt once again caved in to big money causing Americans to hang their head in shame for the rest of the world to see when it comes to this ‘There is no choice do or die’ decision. We need to act now to save our planet as well as countless species that will soon become extinct as a direct result of climate change. At this point calling the Bush administration ‘stupid’ would fit the bill and be a totally accurate assessment. This decision is causing all Americans to simply lose face in the eyes of the world. This clearly wrong decision has now gone well past annoyance and now treads in the garden of survival.
Nostradamus once made reference to something along the lines of beware of the village idiot, perhaps this is what he meant.
Fortunately there is only a very few months left in this presidency, however every day delayed moves us into more severe weather, with more crops lost and more damage done to infrastructure by the hand of nature. This makes the choices very clear when it comes to the November elections. You have a Republican candidate who will follow the same path of big money or a Democratic candidate who has been endorsed by Nobel Prize winner Al Gore.
Simply it is time for Americans to recapture their pride tossed aside by the Bush administration. If you come to think about it, Scott McClellan although under attack by the politically correct attack dogs has more respect in the eyes of the world than George Bush, and that I am sorry to say is a very sad fact indeed.
