Oh, well if Hillary said it, it must be true.

See, I've been ridiculing the whole "global warming" thing because if Inconvenient Al said it it must be a lie. But this is completely different.
Faulting the world for not doing enough to fight climate change, the United States on Thursday announced the formation of a coalition to cut short-lived pollutants that speed up warming and harm health.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the coalition of the United States, Bangladesh, Canada, Mexico, Sweden and Ghana will launch a global drive to curb black carbon (soot), methane and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

The chief US diplomat said such pollutants survive only a short time in the atmosphere -- unlike long-lasting carbon dioxide, the main climate change culprit -- but account for more than a third of global warming.

"We know that in the principal effort necessary to reduce the effects of carbon dioxide, the world has not yet done enough," Clinton told an audience at the State Department that included envoys from the coalition countries.
I now fear the dreaded short-lived pollutants, and vow to do my part. I'm going to cork Little Bear's ass as soon as I log off here. It Takes A huge government program Village!

"The United States on Thursday announced . . ."

Hear the clear voice of the United State ringing out. Make no mistake: Hillary Clinton IS the United State.
