Armored Car - Without Penis?

whale imagesU.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders are now supporting delaying a legally binding climate pact until 2010 or even later, under a compromise deal for next month's Copenhagen summit. Instead, in Copenhagen, diplomats will aim to reach a less aggressive — and much less specific — "politically binding" agreement, with the hope that hard numbers and legal obligations to reduce climate change would be added soon, in a two-step approach. This could be a step-by-step approach that actually produces results - as many of us hope we're seeing with the Obama Administration - or simply more delaying and diluting of things that really need to be done - as many of us fear we're seeing with the Obama Administration.  Time will tell.

In Strange News...What’s the world coming to when your $1.45 million bulletproof SUV with gold trim, a highly expensive Vertu cellphone and three bottles of premium vodka is no longer available with its whale-penis-skin interior? We have environmentalists and Pamela Anderson to thank for this. Dartz, the company that makes the armored luxury SUV for corporate CEOs, has scuttled the exotic material and has now put out a press release in all-caps “ARMORED CAR WITHOUT PENIS. LET’S SAVE THE WHALES.”  Ah, the sacrifices our very, very wealthy are making!

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
