EU takes bold stance on global warming
The Associated Press/Gainesville Sun, Saturday March 10, 2007

"BRUSSELS, Belgium - Europe embarked on a bold path to fight climate
change Friday, agreeing that a fifth of the energy used by the 27-nation
bloc by 2020 will come from renewable sources like the sun and the wind,
and challenging the rest of the world to follow.

The European Union leaders hope their commitment to tackling climate
change will encourage other leading polluters, such as the United
States, Russia, China and India, to agree on deep cuts in emissions of
the gases that contribute to global warming."
