CA: Governor calls on U.S. to enter into international emissions pact ('Gorebalism' advocate)
Sac Bee ^ | 4/12/07 | Kevin Yamamura

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."

Nobody from this man caused Global warming movement has yet to be able to tell me what is the climate supposed to be like? What’s the normal Earth climate?? Again, you don’t see everyday Americans getting on this train. It’s always the rich and famous. Didn't California have a Global warming initiative on the ballot on 2006 that went down courtesy of the voters??

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.

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.

You don't need to be a weather man to know which way the wind blows. Arnold is not on the right or the left, he just does whatever he thinks will make him popular. He always has one finger in the air testing the winds. the other finger is generally stuck up . . . well, you know.

“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.”

I see a vision of Al and Arnold sitting on the verenda sipping mint julips while watching the slaves pick soy beans in the hot sun for their daily ration of tofu. Arnold is a billboard announcement to shut off all immigration from former fascist countries.
