George Bush on Climate Change: “I believe that not only can we solve a greenhouse gas, I believe we will.”

Here’s George Bush’s response to recent lobbying efforts by Tony Blair on climate change, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation:
“GEORGE BUSH: See there’s a lot of things we’re doing* in America, and I believe that not only can we solve a greenhouse gas, I believe we will. And I appreciate the Prime Minister bringing this issue up and I look forward to sharing that which we know here in America with not only the G8 members, but equally importantly, with developing countries.”
I had to read it through several times before I was able to convince myself that this wasn’t a parody.
* the transcript says “going”, but I listened to the audio (accompanying the article), and he clearly says “doing”… the rest of the quote is accurate.

  1. Why, it’s just President Mangle Mouth at his best/worst, Thomas!

  2. Articulate president we have, don’t we?
    As for “a greenhouse gas” one solution’s gonna be that we’re running out of oil. That the cost of gasoline is so high isn’t gonna hurt, either. When hit in the pocketbook people become a lot more careful how much they drive.

  3. Anyone seen Steve Bell’s cartoon about the Blair and Bush talks – http://www.guardian.co.uk/cartoons/stevebell/0,7371,1501724,00.html

    (there’s a long-running thing of Bush being a monkey and Blair a dog)
    Blair goes out on a cringeworthy mission to show British involvement in Iraq has bought influence with America. They are supposed to come up with something about climate change and aid/debt relief to Africa. Bush re-pledges money mostly already earmarked for overseas aid, and says fuck all on climate change.
    therefore, Blair is a pug.

  4. And, don’t forget, we now it was Exxon who initiated the “global warming does not exist” campaign within the Bush ADministrtion
