US stand a `nonstarter' on world climate policy

Of course we're a "non-starter." The United States has been painted by many (including many leftists in this country) as the boogey man of the modern world, especially by the cheating, lying, mobster-thugs of the United Nations, who are mainly responsible for propagating this stupid BS that is "global warming."

Why did we reject Kyoto? Because it's value is far below (by many factors of 10) it's cost, and even most Democrats could see that. Kyoto is even bigger BS than global warming is.

The Associated Press: UN Climate Head: US Stand a `nonstarter':

NEW YORK (AP) — The U.N. climate chief on Monday welcomed statements by Bush administration officials that the United States would accept a binding international commitment to reduce global-warming gases. But he said their insistence that China and other developing nations do the same "is not realistic."

"If it's a quid pro quo, then it's a nonstarter," said Yvo de Boer, executive secretary of the Bonn-based U.N. climate secretariat.

The United States is the only major industrial nation to reject the U.N. climate treaty's Kyoto Protocol, which requires 37 nations to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by an average 5 percent by 2012.
