Oh, the irony...

The New York Times weighs in with a predictable editorial on global warming, castigating America for refusing to join an effort that's doomed to fail (thanks to the nonparticipation of, among others, China and India).

Consider this excellent point from the editorial:

"To believe that companies will spend heavily to reduce emissions while their competitors are not doing the same is to believe in the tooth fairy."

Completely, absolutely, 100% true.

So why in the world does the New York Times expect the United States of America to do just that, while our competitors (in this case, China and India) sit on their hands?
