EU Ambassador Warns of US Senate Climate Bill Delay
The EU ambassador to the US said Thursday that any delay by the US Senate that pushes action on a climate bill into next year could subject the country to the charge that domestic politics will always trump its international commitments, Reuters reports.
Such a move would postpone the formation of an overall US climate plan until after a UN climate meeting in Copenhagen in December.
"If this were to happen it would open the United States to the charge that it does not take its international commitments seriously, and that these commitments will always take second place to domestic politics," Ambassador John Bruton said.
He said asking an international conference "to sit around looking out the window for months, while one chamber of the legislature of one country deals with its other business, is simply not a realistic political position.
