U.S. makes turnabout on global warming at Bali conference


Today CNN reported on a global warming compromise reached at a climate conference in Bali (Indonesia) today in which U.S. negotiator Paula Dobriansky first rejected and then accepted a compromise. The story is "In U-turn, U.S. agrees to global warming deal," the story here.

CNN also has a major link page on the Kyoto Protocol here.

It remains to be seen how a treaty would eventually affect consumers in the United States, who must deal with competition from developing countries, especially China. The Bush administration has insisted that a meaningful compromise without opening programs from more of the developing countries.
