    What an absolutely pathetic crock this is. If "the world" doesn't need us, then WTF are they whining about? We're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

    Piss on all of 'em.

    You can't have a successful peace conference on your block if the biggest kid on the block won't participate. That's all it is. The US is - so far - the biggest contributor to the problem (soon it will be China and probably then India) but won't be part of the resolution. It's okay though, we know it's just your government doing it.

    Umm I suggest you check facts, the majority of American voters DO NOT want this crap. If and when someone actually bothers to provide a real link between man and global warming, you might get movement. IF and WHEN you "blokes" include China, India and EVERY FUCKING BODY else you might get movement.

    I think it is past time to do to you people what you claim we do anyway. Kick out the UN, retaliate in kind to France and the EU when ev er they target American Busimess , commerce or agriculture and respnd in kind when piss ant Countries tell us what bullies we are.

    No more foreign aid to Countries that think we are evil. No more humatiarian aid to the world that can not wait to whine bitch and moan about the US. FUCK you all. Remind us in 5 years whether or not Australia actually even lives up to Kyoto. No one else has, especially Europe.

    So 'we' are the convenient excuse for no action. That's cool. Let China, India, South America, Mexico go, blaming the US, which has a higher rate of cutting pollutants than the rest of you Kyoto babies.

    No, I didn't say that. I said that if the US doesn't get involved then it won't encourage the others (and I am thinking of China and India). It's not sackcloth and ashes here, just looking for a consensus that everyone can live with.

    China will do whatever it must to become the next dominant superpower, especially if it can get away with it at the expense of the U.S.

    India is just trying to get itself together. The craziest thing about the whole worldwide-global-warming-team-up-agreement thing is that in order for it to work, third-world nations that need a robust, fossil-fuel burning economy to prosper are told that they must stay where they are.
    Those uppity Africans should really know where their place is for the betterment of the world, shouldn't they?

    Got a link to the "majority of American voters"? And the US will follow once everyone else does? So much for American leadership.

    Its amazing how the incredibly stupid views of isolationism are making a comeback in America today.
