McCain embraces the fight against Global Warming.
John McCain (R-AZ) signs a Carbon Coalition yard sign in Nashua the night before the 2003 NH Presidential Primary.
More on John McCain and his personal fight against "Global" Worming...
"I am committed as President to pursue the efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses immediately. That includes joining Kyoto as long as we have India and China involved. It would not be fair to the planet to say the two largest growing economies who are greenhouse gas emitters are not part of it. Second of all there is a political reality and the American people would not support our engagement, joining in Kyoto without India and China."

even lib/dem senators voted against kyoto....juan will never get this program through congress.....
but he will try to get his amnesty program passed!!!!!
McCain would sign the Kyoto Treaty and pursue reduction of “Greenhouse gasses”
Does this mean we all have to stop exhaling?
Right on target.
McCain is to the left of Hillary, but he obscures it with the R.
A McCain presidency would be like a national HIV infection.
Slow death from something you don’t even know is there.
Hillary would be an open, festering wound. Plain to see and curable.
McCain is both stupid and stubborn; not a good combination.
C02 is only one third of one percent of the atmosphere....slightly more than the IQ of John McCain....
HE MUST BE STOPPED!!!!
Kyoto treaty is such a joke. When the economy spirals downward as a result of hit, so would his presidency.
Isnt this a flip flop though? Didn’t McCain vote against the treaty, along with every other senator, in the 1990s??
Think again folks. "This is like deja vu all over again.".
That was why DemocRats didn't support Kyoto before. Not because it was stupid and unnecessary, but because it wasn't fair to the planet.
I guess that make McCain a DemocRat. Another reason to never vote for him.
"You FReepers just don't get it!"
Fortunately, the odds of this mean, egotistical, back-stabbing little man making it to the White House is somewhere between slim and none.
And this is just one issue. You can imagine all the others where the GOP where either become cooperative or combative...just because of who the president is (yeah...principles have really nothing to do with it).
And to answer your question, given UN propositions on "sustained development", yes you are to stop exhaling.
When Reagan the Great met with the last Soviet Dictator,Mikey “Rorschach Dome” Gorbachev in Reykjavik,Iceland to discuss limmiting mutual nuclear capabilities,the liberal Democrat wet-dream demanded Star Wars be included in the deal.The Gipper told stain-scalp to shove glasnost up his commie butt and break it (I may be paraphrasing here)—then walked!
That day,11/13/86 was the Stalingrad of the Cold War only this time the Russkies lost.
If any American president gives into the anti-American international socialism of Kyoto and it’s outrageously perfidious presumption of man caused global warming,he should immediately be hung as a traitor without the courtesy of impeachment!
It would be the same as Reagan trashing SDI and thus America’s vital strategic interests in order to please the blotched Bolshivik.
McCain was an irritating yet local rectal polyp who has now become a fast spreading freedom-threatening malignancy.
He must be stopped!
How many total Freepers are there now? 300k? Not enough to start a revolution but enough to screw things up for a lot of people.
“”Kyoto treaty is such a joke. When the economy spirals downward as a result of hit, so would his presidency.””
McCain is 71 years old. If elected he probably would only serve 4 years. If, however, he manages to have Kyoto ratified, the USA will feel the affects of that treaty for decades...and it won’t feel good.
We are THE unatributed “think tank” of American conservatism and the most talented and inteligent (even if some of us can’t spell worth a hoot) amatuer pundits on the planet.
I can’t count how many times I have read or heard proud professionals comment on issues,comments that have already been commented on in Free Republic—and many times commented on better.
Unacknowledged intelectual muses we are and vanguards of the New Media.
Kyoto is ONLY a wealth transfer mechanism.
The U.S. could shut down industry, electrictiy, and transportation, and we’d still be obligated to pay other countries to pollute.
