Skip to comments.Bill Clinton Revises History in Montreal
Posted on 12/10/2005 6:16:16 AM PST by ncountylee
The US economy does not have to suffer if there is an effort to use existing clean energy and energy conservation technologies in America, former US president Bill Clinton told the United Nations climate change conference in Montreal. Bill Clinton was invited to the final day of the Nov. 28 - Dec. 9 UN summit at the invitation of the Sierra Club of Canada. While a summit usually lasts a few days, the UN officials needed almost two weeks in the colorful Canadian city. And what better person than Bill Clinton to end a summit attended by a bunch of pikers living the good life on someone else's dime.
Clinton received enthusiastic applause when he said if clean energy technologies are used, the Kyoto targets could be met and surpassed without economic harm. However, the long-winded ex-president never told his enraptured listeners how the Kyoto Protocol would not negatively impact upon the US economy.
"There's no longer any serious doubt that climate change is real, accelerating and caused by human activities. We are uncertain about how deep and time of arrival of the consequences, but we are quite clear that they will not be good," said Clinton.
He denigrated the main US fear about Kyoto -- that it would hurt the economy by chaining it to greenhouse gas reductions that were not achievable.
"...If we had a serious disciplined effort to apply on a large-scale, existing clean energy and energy conservation technologies -- we could meet and surpass the Kyoto targets easily in a way that would strengthen, not weaken, our economy," said Clinton to applause from the delegates.

Spoken by a man whose business acumen would fit easily in a thimble.
He will die and find a truth that he fears so much now.
And by the jerk that put 'off limits' a large supply of our cleaner coal so his contributors could sell same to us from overseas!
It's a strategy anyway... more than any of their parties 2008 'hopefuls' have.
One could almost conclude the BJ Bill, who after all traveled extensively in the for Soviet Union, might be on Putin's payroll. BJ, who the President has treated well, continues to undercut President Bush's policies to the detriment of our country.
Where ever that POS speaks, he revises history
Perhaps the most I've ever been wrong.
The same coud be said of his audience--collectively. What a sad state, that a gaggle of the world's dirty street urchins seek to rule America.
BJ Clinton must have forgotten about the 95-0 vote on the Byrd-Hagel Resolution in his zeal to blame Bush.
The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly rejected the Kyoto treaty while Klinton was being serviced in the Oval Office. The Senate was concerned about it's economic impact on the U.S. economy, and presumably knew it was also based on bogus "science".
I thought the same thing. All I remember is him saying...."we did a lot of good". Still makes me sick.
He cannot touch foreign soil without being critical of his country.
Bill Clinton is a disgrace.
It's not just BJ that forgot. It's every lefty, the MSM and the assorted groups of Bush haters.
Ain't it the truth!
I was in the supermarket line, and saw a rag that said "CLINTON DRUG PROBLEM." Who can believe Tabloids, but I can believe the old rapist is suffering from depression.
A flat out lie. Zero evidence has been provided for this assinine assertion.
Wasn't it Bob Kerry(D-NE) who said that Clinton was " an especially good liar"?
I believe the man could stand in front of a mirror, lie to his mirror image, and convince himself he was telling the truth.
He'd have made a hell of a snake oil salesman back in the 19th century.
