Bush sets goal to stop greenhouse gas growth by 2025
President Bush on Wednesday set a goal of halting the growth of greenhouse gases by 2025, calling for elimination of clean-energy international trade barriers but stopping short of specific proposals to mandate carbon emissions caps.
Delivering a speech at the White House Rose Garden, Bush said national greenhouse gas emissions growth should peak within 10 to 15 years, stop in 2025, and then decline.
He said the nationwide strategy would build on existing policies to accelerate development of energy-efficiency technologies, cellulosic ethanol, nuclear power, and renewable energy like wind and solar.
Bush said the U.S.–which has been accused of foot-dragging in global climate change talks–will agree to a binding international regime to limit emissions if other countries adhere to their own goals.
