WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement in response to President Bush’s proposed plan to address global warming:
“It is ironic that President Bush who so often has had a go-it-alone, shoot-now-ask-questions-later stance with regard to international affairs, now seems unable to act on global warming without having 15 nations participate in something that won't produce a policy goal for another year and a half.
“This grand statement is merely a misdirection play to divert attention from the fact that the Bush Administration is rejecting the concrete proposals by our closest allies on the eve of the G8 summit.”
The nonprofit League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is the independent political voice for the environment.
