NPR's business news starts with President Bush's strategy on climate change.
And of course this is a major economic story. The president today called on the world's top 15 greenhouse gas-emitting countries to come up with a goal for reducing the gases that are linked to global warming. And he asked countries to work toward sharing environmental technology as well.
Now, the president's statement comes at a particularly important time. It's just ahead of a summit next week in Germany where global warming will be a major topic. European nations have charged the United States with dragging its feet on fighting climate change.
