Clinton urged to set binding CO2 targets

Bill Clinton, to be inaugurated into his second term as US president this month, is being urged to take a leadership role in negotiating legally binding targets for greenhouse gas reductions over the next few years. In lobbying spearheaded by the Sustainable Energy Coalition, more than two dozen organisations are also pointing out that using more renewables and energy efficiency would lead to higher US exports of the technologies involved, create more domestic jobs and reduce emissions in developing countries. In late November the coalition told Clinton that much of the industrialised world will not meet the non-binding targets established in Rio in 1992. It says that many of its member group, which includes the American Wind Energy Association, have urged a reduction of 20% in greenhouse gases, preferably by 2005.
