L'homme vert

The headlines from TPM:
Bush Goes Green?
Not quite. The president tries to preempt legislation that would actually do something about global warming with his announcement a "new national goal: to stop the growth of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2025."
Wired: Bush Announces Greenhouse Gas Strategy -- Surprise! It's Bad
Froomkin: Bush's Third Climate Change Fake-out
Excerpts From Bush's Speech
Bush's New Way Forward

Dan Froomkin:
Bush's trick on climate change is to wait until others are about to embrace mandatory limits on greenhouse gases, then make a major speech about goals and process, without any specifics on measures or penalties.
He's also touting voluntary compliance again. We all know how well that works, in contrast with regulations that are enforced.
