Clinton: "I Never Had Climate Change With..."

Former President Bill Clinton committed to something at the Kyoto Protocol Climate Change Convention in Montreal, Canada that he never committed to during his eight year term: supporting the Kyoto Protocol. But Clinton being Clinton didn't just stop there. He essentially recommended the Bush administration technology solution as a compromise to attract the U.S. to support the protocol. We also noticed that mainstream media covering the event portrayed Clinton as a Kyoto Protocol supporter when they know better.

Bill Clinton never supported the treaty during his presidency and never submitted it to the U.S. Senate for ratification, which passed a 1998 resolution 98-0 rejecting consideration of the treaty. Now the mainstream media portrays President Bush as being a climate change prevention protagonist, when he has reasonable, voluntary technology-based programs that will not harm the U.S. economy. Message to the media: the election is over and you lost.
