article imageDanish prime minister asks asks Bush to back climate treaty

By Owen Weldon     Mar 2, 2008 in World
As of lately it seems that President Bush has been offering valedictory courtesies to some favored foreign leaders, which includes the Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
Rasmussen has been one of Bush's most stalwart defender on Iraq and although he has reduced his country's presence there dramatically he still has 600 troops in Afghanistan.
Rasmussen is delighted to be visiting Bush's Texas ranch this weekend but the Danish prime minister wants the president to reciprocate his loyalty and provide support for Denmark's efforts to negotiate a new global warming treaty when it is the host of a conference next year in Copenhagen.
Bush told reporters that he already talked to Rasmussen more than once about climate change and Rasmussen told reporters that Bush is a world leader on the issue.
It is still unclear on where Bush stands and his administration has been at odds with many European countries that would like to forge a treaty with mandated limits on greenhouse gas-causing emissions.
Some sources say that if the Bush administration made some sort of pledge about reducing global warming than it would lack credibility because the administration opposed many domestic programs to save energy and cut oil consumption.
