EU threatens to Boycott US climate meet.

This is from Google. Even if the EU boycotts the January meetings called for the US in Hawaii Harper will be there close Bush buddy. The whole idea of these meetings is to have a parallel process more under US control.

EU Threatens to Boycott US Climate Meet

BALI, Indonesia (AP) — European nations will boycott U.S.-led climate talks next month unless Washington accepts a range of numbers for negotiating deep reductions of global-warming emissions, Germany's environment minister said Thursday.

"No result in Bali means no Major Economies Meeting," said Sigmar Gabriel, a top EU environment official, referring to a series of separate climate talks initiated by President Bush in September.

The U.S. invited 16 other "major economies" to discuss a possible program of nationally determined, voluntary cutbacks in greenhouse gas emissions, as opposed to the binding targets favored by the EU and others now meeting in Bali.
