Surprise, Surprise. The More Things Change . . . .

From Bloomberg News:

G-8 Vows Greenhouse Gas Curbs;
U.S. Escapes Targets

By James G. Neuger June 7 (Bloomberg)

Leaders of the Group of Eight main industrial nations vowed a renewed global push to fight rising temperatures, while agreeing not to force the U.S. and Russia to set targets now for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

The European Union, Japan and Canada pledged at the G-8 summit on the German seaside to cut carbon emissions in half by 2050. The U.S. and Russia promised to take part in talks on a new international treaty to combat global warming.

Why am I not surprised that what the MSM last week was calling bush's newfound outlook on global warming is not, in fact, quite the case.

If anyone thinks there will be any substantive change in this administration's environmental activities I've got some swampland in Florida I'd be glad to sell you.

No, seriously, I do . . . .
