You can’t make this stuff up:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on an overseas trip to embrace an audience and a topic for which President Bush has shown scant affection: “Old Europe” and global warming.
Pelosi, D-Calif., and seven other House members left Saturday for meetings with scientists and politicians in Greenland, Germany and Belgium on ways to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
You have to wonder what these buffoons will learn from EU countries when they have failed to meet Kyoto Treaty goals.
You know it’s bad when enviro-weenies like Friends of the Earth International are slamming the EU for missing it’s targets.
“I think there are better ideas,” Pelosi said. “I want to keep the door completely open to working with the president on the issue of energy independence and global warming.”
Better look elsewhere San Fan Nan, the EU is fresh out of better ideas.
UPDATE: Alas, Rep. Pelosi departed Europe to early, a couple more days and she could have learned the EU’s “Get Out of Jail Free Card, (otherwise known as Carbon Credits) may be producing more greenhouse gas than it is saving.
Of course she could read it online but I doubt she’s savvy enough to navigate her way around a keyboard.
