Pelosi: The US Must Accept Global Warming

From those devotees to Gaia at Reuters:

Merkel, Pelosi say world should unite on climate

By Louis Charbonneau

BERLIN (Reuters) – Climate change is a global problem that requires unity and “multilateral” agreements if it is to be defeated, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is hosting a Group of Eight (G8) summit in the Baltic resort of Heiligendamm next week, but has so far failed to convince President George W. Bush to sign up to firm targets to combat global warming.

Pelosi is in Germany as part of a European tour to highlight congressional concern about climate change.

“I emphasized that we are of the opinion that we need multilateral agreements in the future if we are to combat this global challenge on a global level,” Merkel told reporters after meeting Pelosi and a bipartisan delegation of key House members.

Bush has been blocking an emerging consensus within the G8 in favor of firm targets for cutting carbon dioxide emissions.

Pelosi, the leader of the opposition Democrats which gained control of both houses of Congress last November, made it clear that she was siding with Merkel against Bush.

“I completely associate myself with the chancellor’s comments that these solutions must be multilateral,” she said…

How many Presidents do we have? Who knew that Representatives could make international treaties?

By the way, since Europe is so omnicient about Global Warming, maybe we should follow their lead on immigration as well.
