MAYBE AL GORE WAS AT THE WHITE HOUSE...:

U.S. marks greenhouse gas decline: For the first time since 2001, carbon emissions were less than the year before, the Bush administration reports (James Gerstenzang, 11/29/07, Los Angeles Times)

The Energy Information Administration said that in 2006 the United States released 1.5% fewer tons than in 2005. [...]

The White House drew attention to the decline on the eve of a meeting in Bali, Indonesia, to launch negotiations on a global treaty to reduce such emissions.

President Bush said in a written statement that, when measured against economic growth, it demonstrated "the largest annual improvement since 1985."


...to give that Nobel to someone more deserving?
