(email fwd to me from me friend daneil) I just cut this straight from the BBC's transcript, after watching the second televised debate between US President George W Bush and Senator John Kerry. For the sake of maintaining people's attention span I have stripped out only a couple of sentences referring to local American statistics......... ======= GIBSON: Senator Kerry... KERRY: ...They [The Bush Administration] pulled out of the global warming, declared it dead, didn't even accept the science. I'm going to be a president who believes in science. GIBSON: Mr. President? BUSH: Well, had we joined the Kyoto treaty, which I guess he's referring to, it would have cost America a lot of jobs. It's one of these deals where, in order to be popular in the halls of Europe, you sign a treaty. But I thought it would cost a lot -- I think there's a better way to do it. ...the way to get from how we live today to being able to live a standard of living that we're accustomed to and being able to protect our environment better, the use of technologies. GIBSON: Senator Kerry, 30 seconds. KERRY: The fact is that the Kyoto treaty was flawed. I was in Kyoto, and I was part of that. I know what happened. But this president didn't try to fix it. He just declared it dead, ladies and gentlemen, and we walked away from the work of 160 nations over 10 years. You wonder, Nikki, why it is that people don't like us in some parts of the world. You just say: Hey, we don't agree with you. Goodbye. The president's done nothing to try to fix it. I will. ======== (see it all at www.bbc.co.uk <http://www.bbc.co.uk/> and search for 'video presidential debate', yay broadband!). If Bush gets in; since he only seems to care about wallet, I will personally endeavour to boycott all American goods. It's as simple as looking on the bottom of 'suspect packages' in the shops, a care in the community action for anyone I believe... Forward this if it feels responsible to do so, Make the most of the Sunshine, Daniel.
