From Politico.com we read:
Former Vice President Al Gore, in town to promote his elegant new book "Our Choice," tells POLITICO's John F. Harris and Mike Allen that President Barack Obama SHOULD go to the climate conference in Copenhagen in mid-December, a question still being debated in the West Wing:
"At Copenhagen, we have to have a binding political agreement that the major countries -- both developed and developing, sign on to ... What is essential is that the outcome feel to the world community as if it's a major step forward."
Gore said he'll be in Copenhagen: ". ... I'm under no illusions that I'm anything but a private citizen outside the process. I will be making a speech to the meeting, and I will be having meetings with delegations that have asked me to come meet with them."
Asked if he thinks it's important for President Obama to go, Gore replied: "I think it is. ... I think he SHOULD go, simply because the stakes are SO high and, by the way, the U.S. has so much at risk because all around the world, the topic of conversation with regard to climate is: When's the U.S. gonna act? ... We're ... the natural leader of the world in the eyes of nations on every continent. And this is by far the most serious challenge the world's ever faced. ... I would hope that he'll go."
The corporate, government globalist Elite have every angle covered to push ratification of the global Climate Change Treaty by the United States in December. While the environmental fascist Al Gore urges Obama to attend the Copenhagen conference to ratify theIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Treaty, the Republicans on the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee don't even show up to the fight!
In another politco.com article: Climate bill passes without GOP we read the following:
The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved climate change legislation Thursday with no Republicans voting for the bill or even participating in the process.
With Republican boycotting the proceedings, Committee Chairman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) relied on a little used interpretation of committee rules to move the legislation. Traditionally, two minority members are required to conduct committee business.
Boxer said that she passed the bill “in full accordance with long-standing committee and Senate rules."
"This is not a procedure we wanted; it’s a procedure that’s available to us," said Boxer. “The majority has to be able to do its work…otherwise the whole Senate could come to a screeching halt."
Republicans called Boxer's move the "nuclear option," warning that it violated decades of committee precedent.
"I am here to appeal to you and the members of the committee," Sen. Jim Inhofe, the top Republican on the committee, said in a brief statement. "In the history of this committee, we have not been able to find a time when the bill has been marked up without minority."
