“(2005-02-28) — As the Prime Minister of Lebanon announced the resignation of his government, the United Nations warned that crowds of protestors in Beirut have generated ‘dangerously high levels of carbon dioxide — a deadly greenhouse gas.’

‘All of this mob chanting, shouting and incessant breathing in and out poses a threat to the environment in the region,’ said U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. ‘Of course, we must blame George Bush’s foreign policy, which has increased the aspirations of millions of people in the Arab world.’

Mr. Annan said the fall of the Syrian-backed Lebanese government serves as a ‘painful reminder of the Bush administration’s failure to cooperate with the global community and sign the Kyoto treaty on greenhouse gases.'” – Scott Ott
