Bill Clinton, Global Warming Fool

This is exactly the sort of thing I’ve been fearing – and expecting – from the Democratic party – the foolish idea that western nations should throttle back on economic and technological development to fight the will-o’-the-wisp of climate change:

Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday.

In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions ’cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren."

It’s my opinion that the exact opposite is true, that we need to accelerate our rate of progress regarding nuclear and fuel cell technology in order to produce cleaner power in the quantities we need to maintain our pace of life and development rather than shutting down our minds, computers, and businesses.
