If Downtown Buffalo Wants To Get Out Of Its Economic Slump, Then It Seriously Needs To Think About Going Green To Save Not Only The Environment, But The Economy As Well.

If Downtown Buffalo Wants To Get Out Of Its Economic Slump, Then It Seriously Needs To Think About Going Green To Save Not Only The Environment, But The Economy As Well.

Global Warming. A problem that has effected our country for decades, not just as a city of Buffalo, or as a state of New York, but as a country, the United States of America. The problem has recently become rather famous in the eyes of the American people since the early 1990’s. Scientists have linked man to the rapid increase in our Earths temperature, and the change in our weather patterns, but no one listened. Until 1997. The Keyoto agreement.

1997. Keyoto, Japan. The United States and other world leaders agree to sign a treaty. This treaty known as the Keyoto agreement, guarentees a mandatory cut back in CO2 emissions used by the many countries of the world. For the United States, the 1990’s were the best economic times in the countries history. Prices were down, spending was up, and stock was never higher, and under president Bill Clinton, who dertermined to keep us in a green surplused economy, it seemed like things were looking great for the future. The Keyoto agreement was sure to pass under Bill Clinton. It wasn’t.

2000. The election of George W. Bush. The Keyoto agreement was stalled until the new president was elected. Bush, being the Republican that he is, his conservative beliefs in the economy and offshore drilling, rejected the Keyoto agreement, saying it would hurt the United States economy in the future. We reject a treaty that was supposedly going to hurt us, but yet we get ourselves involved in a pointless war, another Vietnam, and spend trillions of dollars of taxpayers money, and spiral ourselves down into the worst economic downslide since the Great Depression. How ironic, we reject a treaty that can help our country, but we fear it would “hurt” our economy, but the exact thing we were afraid of came true, without the Keyoto treaty even put into effect.

If the United States or Buffalo have any hope to survive this crisis, instead of spending newly appointed President Obama’s stimulus¬† money on bonuses on people that don’t deserve it, they should spend their money on things that matter, like the middle class, or factories. Factories of wind mills, or solar panels, or flo0resant lights, anything to go green. I believe this is the best way to help the country go green and to save our economy.

The Buffalo Bills Will Be Terrell Owens Fourth Home In His NFL Career. With His Amazing Play And Drive To Win, He Should Bring Great Excitement To The 2009-2010 Bills Season

Just when we thought the free agency couldn’t get any more excited, or any more confusing in the NFL, in a stunning move, the Buffalo Bills sign the outspoken Wide Receiver, Terrell Owens to a one year: 6.5 million dollar deal. This is just two days after Terrell’s release from Jerry Jone’s team in the Cowboys. The move has stunned all of Buffalo and WNY, but also the entire NFL nation. Sources all over the nation are paying attention to the Bills now because of this recent signing.¬† The fact that the Bills were willing to sign Owens, despite rumors that Owens would not be signed for a while, because of his attitude, and his small market for such a high market player.

Rumors around Ralph Wilson stadium speculate however, that even though Owens has his history with yelling at quarterbacks, that it was Quarterback, Trent Edwards that encouraged the front office to make their decision in hiring Owens. Edwards had returned to California and was following up on the Owens story. No more than ten minutes afetr Owens was released fromt eh Cowboys and it was broadcasted on ESPN, Edwards had apparently sent a text message to Bills General Manager, Russ Brandon, stsing in one simple sentence, “What about T.O?”

In a rally, the Bills were able to fly Terrell Owens up to Buffalo from Dallas, and almost immeadiatly after the two parties had met, a contract had been made up, and T.O signed on the dotted line.The Bills were in need of a big time Wide Receiver to match with starting wideout, Lee Evans, and Terrell Owens was looking for a new home. All in all, the deal was a match made in heaven for the Bills as well as for T.O.

Terrell owens impact, I believe will be huge this year for the Bills. It will encourage Trent Edwards to throw the long ball a lot more often now with more confidence knowing that he has two amazing receivers in Terrell Owens and in Lee Evans. Expect to see Roscoe Parrish in a lot more play this year as well. With Terrell and Lee in the game, most teams will double cover both of them, leaving the crazy speedster wide open for a big play every time. This year is gonna be a blast. GO T.O.!!!!!!!!!!
