The U.S. government is sending $1.8 billion in stimulus money to overseas wind energy companies. It's just wrong to spend U.S. tax dollars on clean energy technology from companies in Japan, Denmark and Germany.

UN leader hopes US will act soon on global warming

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

SEATTLE — The United States has to take a strong role if the world hopes to deal with global warming, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says.

"All the world is now looking to the leadership of the United States and President Obama," Ban said in an interview Sunday with The Seattle Times.

Ban is making a two-day visit to Seattle as part of a trip to call attention to global issues such as climate change and to promote the U.N. to the American public. He was to receive an honorary degree from the University of Washington on Monday, after meeting earlier in the day with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda.

Ban has been pressing nations to commit to firm emission limits when they meet in December in Copenhagen, Denmark, to work out a new treaty to slow global warming, replacing the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on carbon dioxide emissions. The meeting has been billed as a last chance to avoid the impact of global warming.

This week, the Senate environment committee will take up its version of a global warming bill. The legislation would cut greenhouse gases by about 80 percent by 2050 and require more domestic energy to come from renewable sources.
