President George Bush unveiled plans this afternoon to destroy all the greenhouses in the US and other parts or the world in order to stop global warming.
"It has been drawn to my attention", Bush said at an afternoon press conference, "that greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise and are interfering with global climate conditions. Therefore, I wish to join the other countries of the world in destroying greenhouses and the gases they produce."
The President says that in times of national emergency he has the right to destroy greenhouses without the approval of Congress.
President Bush was also told that the Amazonian Rain forests were likened to a "giant greenhouse" and he encouraged McDonald's and other large companies to destroy them.
"I have heard that McDonald's Corporation has made great efforts to destroy the rain forests and I would like to encourage them and other industries to do so".
Many scientists seemed to think Bush was mistaken on his views of the cause of global warming claiming that the problem was actually caused by automobiles and man made chemicals. However, none of those scientists were allowed to speak with the President.
General Motors Chairman Frederick (Fritz) A. Henderson praised the President's concern for the environment. "He's the President and I'm not going to argue with him", Henderson said.
