ONDON, Jan. 13 British officials expect U.S. President George W. Bush to reveal a change of position on global warming in his State of the Union address this month.
We could now be seeing the beginning of a consensus on a post-Kyoto framework, a source close to Prime Minister Tony Blair told The Observer. President Bush is beginning to talk about more radical measures.Blair reportedly believes the shift in U.S. policy will end in an agreement on greenhouse gas emissions coming out of the G8 summit this year. The pact would replace the Kyoto Treaty, which expires in 2012 — and which the United States never accepted.
