Bush Seeks Flexible CO2 Targets
President Bush has said every country must set its own targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.His comments at a meeting of the top 16 polluting nations, suggest the US may not agree to any internationally binding cuts. Combating climate change should not hinder economic growth either, he said. Critics say the US position could dilute attempts to reach a global agreement through the UN, ahead of the expiry of the Kyoto Protocol in 2012.
