I bet not a single one of them knows what's really in the Kyoto Treaty.

They'll get a clue when their industries are forced to lay off workers because they can't afford to abide by globalist envirowacko rules.

This country is going down the drain.

"You've got to ask, 'Is it remotely possible that there is a threat?' " he said. "If the answer is yes, you've got to act now."

Is it remotely possible that you could die the next time you get on the road in a car? If the answer is yes, you've got to stop driving now.

Part of the blame goes towards Bush, for not calling these environmentalists the spade that they are.

I'd be interested to see the statistic on what percentage of the nation's greenhouse gases that would be cut if Kyoto were implemented are from these cities.

And by the end of this year the city's power utility, Seattle City Light, will be the only utility in the country with no net emissions of greenhouse gases, the mayor's office said.

Ohhhh, look. A perpetual motion machine.

(could thes people be more stupid?)

I don't really have a problem with this. If the idiots in a particular community want to implement certain standards, then they should be free to do so. However, I would have a problem with the federal government implementing Kyoto.

Mr. Nickels said that to achieve the 7 percent reduction, Seattle was requiring cruise ships that dock in its bustling port to turn off their diesel engines while resupplying and to rely only on electric power provided by the city, a requirement that has forced some ships to retrofit.

he doesn't get it....

Unsettled by a series of dry winters in this normally wet city, Mayor Greg Nickels has begun a nationwide effort to do something the Bush administration will not: carry out the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.

Every one is bitching about the weather, but no one is doing anything about it! (s)
They think oppressing humans will cure a natural earth cycle.
We had hot days long before the industrial revolution. What were they caused by? Too much horse poop?

You should post an idiot alert warning on this one.

The mayors...represent nearly 29 million citizens in 35 states

Then let the citizens vote. They must be more intelligent than you idiots! Have any of these people researched the countless reports debunking global warming? What a crock. Don't fall for it PRESIDENT Bush.

"President's approach to global warming should be more like his approach to terrorism." So if he does this the Demorats will be fighting him at every turn. How is that going to help.

I would bet a pay check that you are correct. Also.. the United States is the #1 Polluter? Yeah, right. I am guessing all those third world nations and china, russia, etc are as clean as the wind driven snow, right? heh.

Businesses moved to those third world countrys for a very good reason besides hourly pay.. no OSHA to deal with and no environmental regulations.

I live in Washington State, not "Seattle." What this A-Hole proclaims doesn't mean $hit to the rest of the state, or the "other" cities involved.

Kyoto is simply a redistribution of America's wealth to the rest of the world. If the rest of the world seeks America's wealth, then perhaps they should embrace capitalism.

The Seattle guy is loopy, complaining about too LITTLE rain. And any claim that the citizens of the large cities can or should or have the moral right to dictate or decide US policy has been repudiated in the last few federal elections.

Great. Let them shut down their own cities and show us how it's done.

In New York, the Bloomberg administration is trying to reduce emissions from the municipal fleet by buying hybrid electric-gasoline-powered vehicles.

Let's see, yesteryear's NYC fad was stinky ethanol buses, today's fad is pricey hybrid vehicles, tomorrow's fad will be....

"...had the Bush administration not rejected the Kyoto Protocol..."

And had the Clinton administration not rejected it -- and had the US Senate not rejected it.

Even the signatories to it at least have enough sanity to violate its senseless terms.
