British Prime Minister Tony Blair, in setting his own course on the issue of global warming, has finally recognized that there is no benefit to him personally, or to the UK, in associating with the faith-based / fantasy-based Bush Administration on this critically important, global challenge. After all, our President is a man who does not believe in evolution; a man whose evangelical Christian beliefs lead him to view the earth’s natural resources as an asset to be plundered by the righteous disciples of Jesus. “Not to worry, God will provide”. “If the earth is getting warmer, it is because God meant it to be so”.
How is it possible to partner with such people to ensure that earth’s LIMITED resources are fairly shared by all the occupants of this planet – even the non-believers? Kudos to Mr. Blair for following the reality-based path.
