Mr. Clinton's Magic Economic Machine


AP reports on a speech made by the erstwhile president to an audience in Montreal:
With a "serious disciplined effort" to develop energy-saving technology, he said, "we could meet and surpass the Kyoto targets in a way that would strengthen and not weaken our economies."
A free "serious disciplined effort" to develop energy-saving technology? Followed by the free replacement of existing technology?

Well, perhaps the effort could be powered by Clinton's hot air, which is the only sign of warming -- global or otherwise -- in Montreal these days.

UPDATE: Follow the money. Always a good bet when it comes to the Clintons. Not that there's anything wrong with money, but the things some people are willing to do for it . . .
