Momentum Gathers on Climate Deal

Leading US politicians are meeting with legislators from the EU, China, Japan and India to seek a breakthrough in the international climate deadlock, that would be seen as a “post-Kyoto” deal.

The meeting is being organised by British-run parliamentarians’ group Globe, and is said to be strongly supported by the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.

On Thursday, it will publish recommendations for a new world deal on climate change at the G8 summit. The gathering in the US senate has attracted two presidential candidates – John McCain and the Senate Foreign Relations committee chair Joe Biden.

But the major stumbling block to any deal remains Bush and his friends in the oil industry.
