Wow, this is big.. guess George has come to his senses in one area anyways, pretty soon he and Al Gore will be exchanging man hugs.. know his ranch is pretty environmentally friendly, but surprised at this headline in the Washington Times.. so it has to be true.. http://www.washingtontimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080414/NATION/676175489/1001 President Bush is poised to change course and announce as early as this week that he wants Congress to pass a bill to combat global warming, and will lay out principles for what that should include. Specifics of the policy are still being fiercely debated, but Bush administration officials have told Republicans in Congress that they feel pressure to act now because they fear a coming regulatory nightmare. It would be the first time Mr. Bush has called for statutory authority on the subject. "This is an attempt to move the administration and the party closer to the center on global warming. With these steps, it is hoped that the debate over this is over, and it is time to do something," said an administration source close to the White House who is familiar with the planning and who said to expect an announcement this week. The source requested anonymity to be able to speak on a sensitive matter still under debate. Given the arguments at the White House over the extent of the action to take, it is not clear exactly what Mr. Bush will propose, the adminstration source said.
