There is something that has been bothering me for about a week or two. HoL is possibly the only place I would care to discuss it (which says a lot about the pitiable nature of my life ) but I guess it's likely to lead ot raised tempers. A while back I found out that the USA is responsible for 25% of greenhouse gas polution and yet they refuse to sign up for any ecological targets that the international summit tried to set. Whenever we talk about Iraq, you hear a lot of Americans say stuff like "if it wasn't for us saving your arses, the world would be in deep shit," but when it comes down to weighing up the planetary ecology vs US economical interests, suddenly the world can go jump. I'd be interested in hearing how US citizens perceive this situation.
