Bush on Global Warming

Over at Planet Gore, there’s a lot of discussion, stimulated by a Washington Times story, about what President Bush is going to say tomorrow about climate change. My understanding is that Bush is not going to unveil or endorse any grand new legislation, and that he remains opposed to the Warner-Lieberman cap-and-trade bill. His aides are, however, offering advice to senators who are also opposed to cap-and-trade but want alternative anti-global warming legislation. Bush and his aides also believe that it would be better for Congress to legislate on global warming than for regulatory agencies to set that policy on their own, and he may make that point in his comments tomorrow.
