Well, you ought to apologize for two reasons: First, for wasting bandwidth
with this political screed on a group for aquatic plant discussions, and
secondly for misrepresenting the topic you discussed.
An agreement was reached between the North American countries, England, and
the other Europeans. Then the _Europeans_ backed out. they backed out,
apparently, because they didn't understand the relation between growing
green plants and CO2. Those who are interested in the details of the
agreement that the Europeans backed out of can go to www.nytimes.com and
read all about it.
Please, can we keep politics out of this group?
