But what's the point of having a little more money when the whole Earth system collapses? Isn't it a wee bit short sited? Won't W. be bummed if he can't visit his friend Tony Blaire because Britain is a block of ice? Or if his nice little home town Texas Ranch is run over by rioting looting mobs, panic stricken by lack of gas, food and goods becasue of global climate disaster and spurring on governmental collapse and disorder?
It sounds like a bad movie, but Bush has made us all day players and extras in this one:
Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us

Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..
A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
'Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,' concludes the Pentagon analysis. 'Once again, warfare would define human life.'
The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority.
More and more.
How are you going to throw money at that one, W. to help increase your soon to be single digit polling numbers? Will Karl Rove advertise summer vacations at the North Pole and tax breaks to corporations who outsource surfing and water skiing to the south pole?
Hard to believe how many disasters one man can bring upon the world in so short a span of time.
