The Pope and the President vs. The World

While climate scientists and those who have not been blinded by greed remain sleepless and angry over the global cataclysm that awaits the Planet unless action is taken now to tame greenhouse gases, the Pope is squandering his moral and educational authority by towing the Exxon-Mobil rhetorical line for short-term profits and assured global catastrophe. How else could we end up with this Fox News headline: "Global Warming Skeptics Have Friend in the Vatican."

For sure, it is in keeping with the type of moral depravity that the Vatican has exhibited in protecting and even promoting kingpins within the pedophile ring that the Church unofficially sanctioned by years of neglect, denial, and obfuscation.

It seems entirely fitting that the dangerous lame duck, George Bush, would host the Pope for a Texas-style barbeque next April to further develop propaganda plans for the Coalition of the Deniers, which includes the 14.4 acre Vatican territory and the 1,600-acre kingdom on the outskirts of Crawford, TX.

Meanwhile in Bali:

BALI, Indonesia — Al Gore said Thursday the United States is "principally responsible" for blocking progress at the U.N. climate conference, and European nations threatened to boycott U.S.-led climate talks next month unless Washington compromises on emissions reductions.

The former vice president urged delegates to take urgent action to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming.

"My own country, the United States, is principally responsible for obstructing progress here in Bali," said Gore, who flew to Bali from Oslo, Norway, where he received the Nobel Peace Prize for helping alert the world to the danger of climate change.

Earlier, the United Nations warned that time was running out for an agreement aimed at launching negotiations for a successor to the Kyoto Protocol and the talks in Bali were in danger of "falling to pieces." . . . .
