Climateer "Line of the Day"

From the Reuters story "China asks for more leeway on greenhouse gas".
I know it's early but what's going to top this?
"So this greenhouse gas emission is not just for meeting the needs of the Chinese people's daily necessities, but meeting the needs of many people in the world, especially the low-income people in the world"
-Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi
The better pitch would be "It's for the children". We have to cut the Chinese some slack though, they're new to this democracy political lingo thing. Here's how they do it in Cook County:

"For the health and safety of children and the entire community, shall the State of Illinois enact a comprehensive ban on the manufacture,
sale, delivery and possession of
military-style assault weapons and .50 caliber rifles?
