Let’s say that, as the leader of this powerful and productive nation, you’re still on the fence about global warming. You need more science. You’re just not sure if really doing anything about it (if it’s really a problem) is necessary. Besides, any global treaty to address the problem is sure to have a devastating impact on your economy.
