2100, Got Ice?

As Bush gets Elected again for the first time. Reality once again as it has for 4 years now begun to smack Georgey in the face.

The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) report is due November 8th. This is a joint venture between the counries that produce 30% of the worlds CO2 emmisions. Official sponsors from the United States, Canada, Russia, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Iceland and Norway have confirmed that within a generation or two the earths polar ice caps will be melting.

Global warming will lead to a rise of about 1 meter in sea levels, and subsequent death or serious hard times of the 17 million people who live below 1 meter of sea level.

Polar bears will be extinct since they rely heavily on sea lions that live on the ice caps.

Florida, New Orleans, and other US cities will be affected as well.

As Russia ratifies the Kyoto treaty designed as a colaborative effort to decrease global CO2 emmisions Bush continues to rebuke this and other treaties. While Bush promises to begin to "reach out to everyone who shares our goals." Even the cold blooded Ruskies have trumped us on this one.

While this reality of the polar ice melt will only materialize during our grandchildrens time on earth, it is the responsibility of government and each and every one of us to pu tpolicy ahead of special interests on the environment.

Since Bush's second debate he stated he didn't want to be involved in the Kyoto treaty because it would hurt american businesses.

Mr. Bush don't you think you have helped these businesses enough already?
