Meanwhile Bush, ignoring the fact that the US is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world (China became no. 1 this year) will oppose any new agreement that does not contain targets for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world.
Fortunately for Americans, their embarrassment will finally come to an end this year, as this is the last G8 meeting for Bush.
Unfortunately for Canadians our embarrassment could remain in office for another one.
