From Greenwire (subs. req’d):
The United Nations’ top official invited President Bush today to attend the General Assembly’s debate this fall on global warming.
Calling climate change a “very important issue for all humankind,” U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon invited Bush to the daylong debate Sept. 24.
“Your participation will be very much appreciated, and I’m looking forward to welcoming you to New York,” Ki-moon said during a meeting with Bush in the Oval Office, according to a transcript released by the White House.
Bush did not say if he would accept the invitation, and a White House spokeswoman did not respond to inquiries by press time.

Bush plans to host his own forum in the late fall on global warming, though the exact date and location are still to be determined.
