By 2020, the United States will emit almost one-fifth more gases that lead to global warming than it did in 2000, increasing the risks of drought and scarce water supplies.
That projection comes from an internal draft report from the Bush administration that is more than a year overdue at the United Nations. The Associated Press obtained a copy Saturday.
The United States already is responsible for roughly one-quarter of the world’s carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse” gases that scientists blame for global warming.
The draft report, which is still being completed, projects that the current administration’s climate policy would result in the emission of 9.2 billion tons of greenhouse gases in 2020, a 19 percent increase from 7.7 billion tons in 2000.

Racing to the End
We really need to get serious here folks. If we don't reduce out green house gas emissions by 70% in the very near future it will be too late and the world as we know it will go away. The current mis-administration knows what they are doing is wrong but they just don't care. They have their money and power and think the destruction of our planet won't reach far enough to affect them. They're wrong and their arrogance and stupidity is going to kill us all and destroy the only planet we have.
