British Prime Minister Miscalculates Carbon Cuts

U. K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown revealed today that his crusade to reduce the world’s output of greenhouse gases has taken an unexpected turn.

“When our Save Mum’s Earth committee announced their calculations last year I misunderstood the number of tons needed to stop global warming,” he said during a hastily-arranged news conference by the River Thames Glacier.

“I thought they said we needed a reduction of 5 trillion tons of carbon gases instead of 5 billion,” replied Brown.  “Of course I’m pleased that my leadership in cutting greenhouse gases produced a smashing success, but for Christ’s sake would somebody please turn up the heat in number 10 Downing Street?”

The P. M.’s conference was cut short when part of the roof caved in, a consequence of last night’s blizzard which was the fourth to hit London since July 15th.
