NPR's Dan Charles reports from Bonn, Germany on preparations for this week's talks on a global warming treaty. Today's announcement by President Clinton of a rough timetable for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. still puts him at odds with other industrialized countries, who want a faster timetable. Delegates in Bonn also don't require developing countries to be involved, while the U.S. is looking for some type of commitment from these countries.
