The G8 miraculously come to a consensus on climate change, and promise swift action to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets. Ha ha, just kidding. As usual, the self-congratulatory group present a plan that calls for halving today’s levels over the next 42 years. Dream big, guys, dream big.

The one bright spot in the equation is that all of the pols involved will be long dead by the target date. One assumes that the amount of hot air they spout is contributing greatly to the world crisis – both literally and figuratively.

White House press secretary Dana Perino responded to such criticisms by saying that the G-8’s action was “quite significant.”

“For the environmental groups, it will never be enough,” she said.
