Am I huffing glue, or is this a real story?

Tony Blair is to devote himself to fighting global warming when he quits power this summer by promoting an American rethink on the Kyoto protocol.

Tony Blair decided the best time to lobby America for a “rethink” on global warming is after he’s divested of all power? He thinks he’ll have more leverage as a disgraced, deeply unpopular ex-Prime Minister?

The tragicomic arc of Blair’s career will be grist for some great works of history someday. For now, though, you just gotta cringe.
