Bush Rejects Climate Deal At G8

President Bush says Kyoto treaty on global warming would have wrecked U.S. economy and rules out a climate deal at the G8 conference.

Mr Bush said he would resist measures that were similar to the 1997 UN Kyoto protocol, involving legally binding reduction on carbon emissions, that Washington never ratified...He said he hoped the other G8 leaders would 'move beyond the Kyoto debate' and consider new technologies."
