I Hate to Be Mean, But . . .

At the G-8 summit, the U.S. continues to deny the reality of global warming and its causes. The Post explains:
Every G-8 member except for the United States -- Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Russia -- has ratified the Kyoto Protocol.

U.S. officials managed to excise swaths of text that called for "ambitious" greenhouse gas reductions and committed G-8 countries to spending a specific amount on environmentally friendly projects. They managed to eliminate the opening sentence, "Our world is warming," as well as lengthy descriptions of how melting glaciers and rising sea levels reflect recent climate change.
Today's quotation from Goethe: "The masses fear the intellectual, but it is stupidity that they should fear, if they only realized how dangerous it really is."

Today's quotation from our President: "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"


The real question is: Is our President learning?

I hate to be mean, but this is serious.
