Global Warming: Bill Clinton Wants You To Get Off… Your Butt

Anytime Bill Clinton uses the words “get off”, it grabs attention.

From Reuters:

Former President Bill Clinton said on Saturday global warming is a greater threat to the future than terrorism and that the United States and other countries must “get off our butts” and do something about it.

Clinton, speaking to the graduating class at University of Texas’ Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, said the United States must pursue policies that make “more partners and fewer enemies” and use “institutionalized cooperation” before there is catastrophic damage from global warming.

What with the auto emmissions, industrialization and other things Al Gore, Bill Clinton and others say is causing global warming, isn’t “getting off our butts” the problem? Bubba should have told people to stay home and do nothing.

I know one thing: Bill Clinton’s plane to Texas combined with his speech put more greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere than you or I will in the next month.

So, global warming is a bigger threat than terrorism? This Clinton “truth” should be very comforting to the victims of terrorism, provided they are killed by hybrid car bombs.
