    Bush regime offended by "respect for nature"

    According to this article, from the San Francisco Chronicle, the Bush regime has objected to a proposal to express "respect to nature" at a UN conference next month in New York:

    That phrase was included in a draft statement of principles to be agreed to by 175 heads of state and government attending a Sept. 14 United Nations summit on poverty and U.N. reform. The statement invited leaders to embrace a set of "core values" that unite the international community, including respect for human rights, freedom, equality, tolerance, multilateralism and respect for nature.
    Unsurprisingly many are puzzled why the US would not wish to express its respect for nature. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Oh dear, it does seem to get worse doesn't it exoplanet. I do hope that someone is able to stop those proposals.

    I wonder what would have been the worse noun, respect or disrespect?
