At the recent climate jamboree in Bali, the Rev. Al Gore told the assembled faithful: "My own country, the United States, is principally responsible for obstructing progress here." Really? The American Thinker's Web site ran the numbers. In the seven years between the signing of Kyoto in 1997 and 2004, here's what happened:

•Emissions worldwide increased 18.0 percent;

•Emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21.1 percent;

•Emissions from nonsigners increased 10.0 percent; and

•Emissions from the United States increased 6.6 percent.

But Sarah, those silly facts don't take into account BLAH! or this BLAH! Or that! So you're WRONG! Those numbers don't mean anything!

Dear Lord. Why do people who have been fully blessed feel the need to call themselves and their heritage horrible criminals to assuage guilt about being a "have"?

Sheesh, just give your crap away and live in a mud hut. Then you can have the "have not" moral authority. But you won't get any Hollywood awards, either.
