"Ban Says U.S. Climate Bill Plan 'Not Enough'"
"COPENHAGEN -- A draft U.S. climate bill did not go far enough to cut greenhouse gases, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told Reuters on Sunday, three days after the plan won a key Congressional panel vote.
Ban applauded President Barack Obama's engagement on global warming but said that other countries were doing more, and added that a new global climate pact meant to be agreed in December could not wait for the United States to pass its domestic rules.
'That's what I have been doing and will continue to do,' Ban said when asked if he was urging the United States to do more."Source: Reuters, 05/25/2009
