GLOBAL WARMING- G8 Winners and losers

The G8 Summit is over and the results on global warming depends on your perspective. Both sides are claiming victory. However, it appears to me that the G8 may have adopted President Bush’s viewpoint on global warming. See this analysis by Marlo Lewis of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
G8 Statement:
Climate change is a serious and long-term challenge that has the potential to affect every part of the globe. While uncertainties remain in our understanding of climate science, we know enough to act now to put ourselves on a path to slow and, as the science justifies, stop and then reverse the growth of greenhouse gases

The phrase comes straight out of Bush's "Global Climate Change Policy Book," from Feb. 2002,
Yes, "as the science justifies." The science is still in doubt. We are still waitiing for Professor Mann to produce the source data for the hockey stick he produced in the UN IPCC Report.
