Global warming: Over 6 billion people will perish in the next hundred years
A lot of folks have been wondering why President Bush hopped aboard the global warming bandwagon during his State of the Union speech. It turns out the President has received confidential environmental intelligence about the future of the world.
It seems Senator Hagel was visiting the Oval Office and discussing the fact that thousands of Iraqis and American troops are dying each year.
"Jesus!" President Bush exclaimed. "Six billion people are going to die? How come, Dick?"
"Global warming, sir."
"Are you telling me everybody's going to die because of global warming?" asked the President.
"Yes, sir." For some reason, Vice-President Cheney then chuckled.
I understand that when President Bush talked about fighting global warming in his State of the Union address, Vice-President Cheney seemed very surprised.
