Generosity of Australia and US knows no bounds

At the conclusion of the 'Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development & Climate' talks Australian prime minister John Howard pledged to invest $75 million over five years to combat global warming, and the U.S. delegation said President George Bush will seek $52 million in his 2007 budget.

It's kind of like, you're lying at the side of the road bleeding to death and a car stops and offers you a paracetemol, isn't it?

And then as it drives off it runs over your toes.

U.S. energy secretary Samuel Bodman said nuclear must be considered as an option if there are to be cuts in GHG emissions, because global demand for electricity will increase 50% over the next 20 years. “Nuclear power, it seems to me, is an obvious requirement” for the future.

The Energy Police should just put him out of his misery.
