  1. Does George Bush care about global warming? :

    I read that George Bush is indifferent to global warming; he just doesn't care. And apparently Bush is focused more on Cheney's interests in the energy industry. Probably both Bush and Cheney will ignore global warming... they don't want to sign the Kyoto Protocol. Environmentalists will be angry at them, but then again much of the American public doesn't care about climate change.

    Myself, I can't decide... depends whether global warming disasters will happen soon, or in 20 years or 100 years... who knows...
