A.P. = Asininity Proliferation

Check out this AP bit on climate change:

A pivotal meeting in Bali, Indonesia, in December 2007 set a two-year timetable for the world to produce a grand new agreement to cut even deeper into the greenhouse-gas emissions largely blamed for global warming.

Every one of the thousands attending that U.N. conference saw the problem, however: The U.S. administration of President George W. Bush had blocked progress on climate change for seven years, and would do so for one more.

*Sigh* First, as James Taranto notes, "did the AP interview every one of the thousands who attended the conference in Bali? Or is this 'reporting' on the level of elementary-school gossip: 'Everyone hates you'?"

Second -- AGAIN -- it was under the Clinton administration that the Kyoto Protocols were rejected ... by a virtually unanimous US Senate (95-0).
