CEOs to Bush: Reduce Emissions Now

On the eve of the "President's" state of the union, 10 CEOs from major US corporations (Alcoa, BP America, DuPont, Caterpillar, General Electric, Duke Energy, Florida Power & Light, PNM Resources, Pacific Gas & Electric, Lehman Brothers) sent a joint letter to Bush, urging him to reduce emissions, and acknowledging global warming, reports the Seattle Times:

"The group, called the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, supports a nationwide cap that would reduce the amount of carbon dioxide by up to 10 percent within 10 years and by as much as 30 percent in 15 years. By 2050, the levels of carbon dioxide would be cut by 60 to 80 percent from current levels."
And since we all know that the only voices that Bush listens to, besides those in his head, are the voices of major corporations, maybe he will finally admit what every liberal/scientist has said for the past 10 years.
