US rejects Blair's climate hopes

The US has dismissed a suggestion from UK Prime Minister Tony Blair that it may be prepared to sign up to binding targets to tackle climate change.

Speaking at UN climate talks in Canada, the US chief negotiator said his nation would not enter talks about fixed curbs on emissions of greenhouse gases.

Mr Blair told UK business leaders on Tuesday that he believed all major nations would support new targets.

Is there a way we can do this without them. No malice to the millions of US citizens who are trying to make a difference, but the world will be a better place after their leaders’ stupid policies cause the country’s economy to collapse and force a low energy rebuild on it.
