Bush arrives at G8 summit, giving no ground on global warming

According to the AFP as reported in TerraDaily-Your Portal to Earth,
US President George W. Bush arrived here Wednesday for a Group of Eight summit where he is expected to back increased aid to Africa while refusing to endorse a call for urgent action to combat global warming.

And why is this a headline? There is no need for urgent action to combat glabal warming. This is no proof there is global warming. And there is nothing little 'ol mankind can do to combat global warming anyway.
Accompanied by his wife Laura, Bush was to travel by helicopter to a heavily fortified luxury golf course in Gleneagles, north of the Scottish capital Edinburgh, to meet with counterparts from Britain, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan and Russia.
And of course, by contrast, his seven counterparts must have traveled by open carriages through the streets of Edinburgh to the cheers of thousands of adoring, smelly protesters.

While Bush and his conservative administration were initially skeptical that more aid is what Africa most needs, they have lately softened that position and now say the United States plans to increase assistance from its current level of 4.3 billion dollars a year to 8.6 billion by 2010.
And why wasn't this the headline? This has got to be great news for the present and future rulers of the African states; more gold for their pockets. Yee Hah.
