At his final G8 summit in Japan, George Bush, the President and leader of the most powerful nation in the world and the nation with the biggest responsibility TO the world (since we consume 25% of the world’s resources) told world leaders as he left the summit, right after rejecting global climate change targets, with a smile and a wave, “Goodbye from the world’s biggest polluter.“
No. This is not a joke.
The most powerful man in the world and the leader of our country has once again shown the utmost disrespect to our allies and the people of the world with his comments and actions.
Regardless of your political persuasion you have to agree that comments such as these are not helpful to our image abroad and do little to advance our international political interests.
I just have to keep telling myself just six more months..just six more months.
