Bush’s Emissions Meetings


President Bush is expected to give a speech on climate change today, capping two days of talks in Washington involving the world’s top greenhouse gas emitters.

The New York Times says the opening day of discussions on reducing carbon pollution took place amid skepticism and drew mostly mid-level officials from attending states.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, in a preview of Bush’s speech, made sharp comments on climate change yesterday at meetings of the Clinton Global Initiative. Paulson said the world faced “very, very bad outcomes” if major efforts are not made to reduce carbon emissions and said President Bush agreed, saying anyone who watches his speech today will “know how serious he is.”
