Can anyone please explain to me how this can be considered progress? Seems to me like Bush is sticking to his stance that global warming is something that needs to be addressed, just not by him. I mean the real kicker to me is this happy passage:
[German Chancellor Angela] Merkel, the host of the Group of 8 meeting, proclaimed it a major victory. She had placed climate change at the top of the agenda for the gathering, and put heavy pressure on Mr. Bush in recent days to relax his opposition to mandatory cuts in emissions, though he ultimately did not.
Major victory? McBone's arch-enemy loves pollutin'. Always has, always will. The next president will have no choice but to address climate change. Why is Merkel wasting her time on this guy?
