Washington Post Agrees with "W" on Climate Change Policy

In an editorial opinion published in today's Washington Post, the writer encouraged President Bush to treat the statements of Prince Charles and Prime Minister Blair as an opportunity:

What is clear is that Mr. Blair's initiative offers an excellent opening for Mr. Bush. The president, who has benefited from Mr. Blair's support, should say he supports the prime minister's initiative, wants to leave the Kyoto dispute behind and is ready to address climate change issues, actively and enthusiastically, in an international forum once again.

It seems the White House is way ahead of them. A "fact sheet" was released by the White House on July 8, 2005, stating, inter alia:

Today, President Bush and the G-8 Leaders agreed on a far-reaching Plan of Action to speed the development and deployment of clean energy technologies to achieve the combined goals of addressing climate change, reducing harmful air pollution and improving energy security in the U.S. and throughout the world.
