kyoto revisionism .....

‘President Bush’s new nominee for Treasury
Secretary, Goldman Sachs Chairman Henry M. Paulson Jr., not only endorses the
Kyoto Protocol to limit greenhouse emissions, but argues that the United
States’ failure to enact Kyoto undermines the competitiveness of U.S.

Here’s a
statement from the Nature Conservancy
, where Paulson serves as chairman of the board:

“The Kyoto Protocol is a key
first step to help slow the onslaught of global warming and benefit
conservation efforts
…Until the United States passes its own limits on global warming emissions,
innovative companies based here will lose out on opportunities to sell reduced
emission credits to companies complying with the Kyoto Protocol overseas.  

Additionally, without enacting
our own emission limits, U.S. companies will lose ground to their competitors
in Europe, Canada, Japan, and other countries
participating in the Protocol who are developing clean technologies.”’

Secretary Nominee Says Failure To Ratify Kyoto Undermines US Competitiveness

obviously Henry hasn’t had the benefit of wise
counselling from our “didn’t see, didn’t hear, didn’t know”, award winning,
international environmental expert rodent, during his last leg along the
Potomac …..

Goldman Sachs

I'm beginning to wonder exactly which pies Goldman Sachs don't have their fingers in.  Everywhere I read, there they are.

pasties & cake .....

A little like our local friends at Macquarie Bank Richard.

A hunger for money is an essential appetiser for those who would feed on the pasties of power & privilege. And there's just never enough cream for their cake.
