If I were a Palastinian I could imagine becoming a suicide bomber over this headline

Clinton calls Israeli concessions "unprecedented"  AP

Hey!!!, instead of brutally raping each of my children every day for the next 10 years they are considering
reducing that by an hour - what an unprecedented concession!!!!  I'm so grateful
to the Israelis for their magnanimity!!! 

And the US, oh my, I just Love the US for backing and protecting them in all this!!!

God damn we Americans to Eternal Hell for our complicity; for our by-standing; for our neglect.

I fiirst saw this 2 days ago...

PROFOUNDLY IMPORTANT: Crafting a Copenhagen deal with teeth San Francisco Chronicle

"Better to take climate change personally. Economist Sir Nicholas Stern calculated in his review that if we are to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, by 2050 each man, woman and child on the planet can emit only 2 tons of carbon dioxide per year. Today, global per capita greenhouse emissions are at 4.2 tons - in San Francisco, the per capita average is 11 tons, and for the United States, it is 24 tons per person."

"By combining clear climate actions with a per capita carbon dioxide target, citizen groups, lawyers and the public will have the tools to hold their politicians accountable to their Copenhagen commitments. By focusing on what each country can do today rather than what 192 nations are unlikely to do tomorrow, the Copenhagen climate conference still has the opportunity to save the planet."
