(Still) Silencing the Naysayers

Apparently nothing has changed in the last twelve hours. Big surprise. This article from yesterday's New York Magazine details how the Bush administration tried to strong-arm the U.N. into cancelling Bill Clinton's speech at the recently concluded Climate Change Conference in Montreal.

On the one hand, it's further (and disheartening) confirmation of what I wrote about earlier today. On the other hand, it's funny that the administration's threat - to pull out of talks on a new Kyoto deal - was taken seriously, given that they have absolutely no intention of signing onto the treaty, regardless of its terms.
