Annan criticizes global warming doubters

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan told the U.N. conference on climate change Wednesday that those who would deny global warming or delay taking action against it are "out of step" and "out of time."

"Let no one say we cannot afford to act," Annan declared, in a clear reference to those, such as the Bush administration, who contend that reducing global-warming gases would set back economies too much.

The U.N. chief lamented "a frightening lack of leadership" in fashioning next steps to reduce global emissions. "Let us start being more politically courageous," he urged the hundreds of delegates from some 180 member nations of the 1992 U.N. climate treaty. [...]

BWAHAHAHAAAAAHA--::gasp::wheeze:: Sorry-- ::hack:: Sorry, but hearing Kofi Annan lecture anyone about showing leadership and being politically courageous is about like Ted Kennedy lecturing someone on the dangers of drunk driving.
