Skip to comments.CA: Governor calls on U.S. to enter into international emissions pact ('Gorebalism' advocate)
Posted on 04/12/2007 7:12:25 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Thursday that the U.S. and other countries should enter into a new international greenhouse gas reduction pact similar to the Kyoto Protocol that President Bush has opposed and the U.S. has never ratified.
Schwarzenegger, speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, said he supports an idea by British Prime Minister Tony Blair to bring all of the Kyoto holdouts into a new worldwide agreement to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
"I think the problem is getting so serious now that those countries have to participate, everyone has to participate," Schwarzenegger said. "Including China, including India, the United States.
"The federal government is falling behind with the action here. I mean, I believe very strongly that if the federal government does what California does, which is to make a commitment to roll back the greenhouse gases or to come up with carbon fuel standards the way we have done ... a lot of things can happen and we can be a great inspiration to the rest of the world."
Asked a question about whether environmentally minded politicians should be held accountable for the large cars and private planes they use, Schwarzenegger suggested those details should be of little consequence if the politicians are working toward a larger good.
The Republican governor himself owns four Hummers and uses a private plane, and he said the people have a right to know what environmentalists do energy-wise. But he framed his answer as a defense of former Vice President Al Gore, who faced criticism for energy use in his large Tennessee home after the success of his global warming documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Hey, welcome back. I liked your style, hope you made nice with the “mods”.
Hey Arnie how about something more important CLOSE THE BORDERS! Sounds like you’ve been Kennedyized, Fat head Ted and the crew finally broke you down! WOW the terminator gets taken down by a bloated Kennedy! Who would have thought.
I was framed! That b!tc# set me up! < /Marion Barry mode>
Thanks, nice to be back. I was misinterpreted, but upon re-reading what i wrote, i guess I could take it the way the mod took it. A stretch, but oh well. I shouldn’t play so close to the edge.
them mods use treble hooks too....lmao
LOL! I can’t blame mods for what i wrote. At least I didn’t get suspended for posting a news article in the extended news section. Saw that happen earlier today. Unnngh!
Follow the rules you’ll be fine.
You know that.
Hey Arnold STFU.
Thank you, Arnold:
Now it’ll be another 200 years before ANYone talks again about letting a foreigner run for President!
California government is going down and Arnie-the-socialist is trying to hitch a ride on the global warming swindle to temporarily rescue California. Rescue to where? To a more socialist state.
Arnold is still only a body builder, nothing more.
Ahnold has sure embraced the Carbon Credit Scam.
Ever since Tony Blair visited him, or earlier.
I wonder if a hefty gift of “credits” have been placed for him in a foreign bank.
What an abject dip-stalk! Davis had more dignity and gravitas than this dip-wad! What in the world is wrong with CA voters, especially Republicans and even (God Forbid) some pseudo CONservatives???
Let's roll the credits on this horror movie and get ready to Recall this ridiculous teutonic egomaniaCAL blubbering barbarian!!!
I don't know who'll win, neither do I care.
But Arnoiled Schwartzenfrauder, "the Pimpinator," is too ignorant to realize the Senate voted Kyoto down FLAT... 98 to NOTHIN!!! (That included stupid Uncle Teddy "fat head" Kennedy!)
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.
