Who does the G8 leaders think they are not to accept the plans bush drew out on a napkin? All of his plans thus far were drawn out using this approach.

(See, by bringing down both of them, while I sit in that classroom, we can convince most of them to support Napkin Plan B)

It’s a mistake to show seven leaders lining up against Bush. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is such a devotee of all things Republican that he makes John McCain look like Leon Trotsky.

Look for Harper to play lap dog to anything Shrub says.

I run a website that discusses global warming so I feel that I have a handle on most of the pertinent issues.

In my opinion, Mr. Bush is simply giving into politics. This isn’t surprising - he is a politician. With the elections coming up in about 18 months he needs to set up for a successor from the Republican party. He cannot allow the Democratic candidates to make global warming a huge issue so it only makes political sense to agree to some types of talks and discussions.

It is interesting though that when Mr. Bush acts as an administrator (the job he gets paid for) he has said that the science does not support dramatic changes in our economy - hence the US did not sign the Kyoto document.

Just show him a piece of toilet paper, not a napkin.
