Ahead of the G8 Summit, Germany has proposed some tough measures to curb greenhouse gas emissions that the U.S. has squarely rejected.

The German proposal is focused on real timetables and targets for cuts. AS we all know, "timetables" is a long, four-letter word for the Bush Administration. I imagine doubly so if it harms the oil industry.

Apparently, Greenpeace got a hold of the draft document and leaked it to the press. They refer to the American position as "criminal."

Maybe if Gore becomes president they'll find a friendly ear.
