Clinton: Answer to global warmin
lies in energy-efficient technolog
WASHINGTON (AP) — Presi
dent Clinton said Monday the dan
ger of global warming is real but
higher energy taxes to fight it “won’t
pass muster with the American
people” and probably would doom
an anti-pollution treaty.
Clinton, at a White House con
ference, said the United States
must commit to steps to control
global releases of heat-trapping
gases. But he said the answer lies
in promoting new energy-efficient
technologies — and not imposing
steep energy price increases to en
“If all we do is raise the price of
coal and oil... it won’t pass muster
with the American people,” said Clin
ton. Any treaty to curb greenhouse
gases by forcing higher energy costs
would be “a grand gesture” likely to
fail a ratification vote by the Senate.
Some economists and labor
leaders, meanwhile, urged cau
tion, fearing the new carbon emis
sion cuts would hurt U.S. indus
tries and lead to jobs being sent
overseas to countries facing less
“The economic stakes for the
United States are enormous. It is es
sential that we do whatever we do
carefully,” AFL-CIO President John
Sweeney said during a panel dis
cussion on economics, wrapping
up the daylong conference.
Deputy Treasury Secretary Larry
Summers, who in internal adminis
tration debates has urged a go-slow
approach, said any U.S. program
to ease the transi
tion for U.S. indus
tries and reduce
Clinton said he
persuaded” by the
tion from burning
fossil fuels will cause a dangerous
warming of the planet if not
checked. Capping such pollution is
essential “to avoid leaving our chil
dren and grandchildren with a cat
astrophe,” the president said.
Clinton also said “a global agree
ment must take into account devel
oping nations” but that uncertainty
about the role of such countries as
China and India is “not an excuse for
us to do nothing.”
Later, Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright said the United States would
seek a global agreement that is fair to
such developing countries as China,
which has said it would not commit to
pollution controls until developing
countries have acted.
Industry groups have wag
$15 million advertising camp;
predicting that Clinton’s gk
warming policies will causeen;
prices to soar and putU.S.im
tries at a disadvantage against!
na and other countries.
The conference, attended h
enlists, business groups and
ronmentalists, was designed tog
er support for the administrai
global warming policy in advant
international climate talks ink
in December to negotiate bk
caps on heat-trapping emission
“I’m confident that thescieno
climate change is real,” Clinton
the conference held at Geoi
University. "Although we donotk
everything, what we do knowisn
than enough to warrant action.

take to bury our heads intotta
and think the issue will go®
