Mr. Gore: read THIS; only if you become president can you stop global warming

The Wall St. Journal runs an op ed today that makes it clear that global warming will not even be addressed, let alone solved, without some very forceful leadership from Washington, calling Bush a “shrewd diplomat on global warming” for his disemboweling of any meaningful plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

essentially in response to Bush’s foot dragging:

Tony Blair: The truth is, no country is going to cut its growth or consumption in the light of a long-term environmental problem.

…..

Yesterday’s declaration [by the G-8], far from mandatory targets, instead sets a “global goal” of halving emissions by 2050.

If Gore is really serious about change, if he is committed, then he has to run for president.
