Department of “Not Gonna to Happen”

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.

Dept. of No Point in it Happening (buried at the end of the article):

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.

Baghdad, anyone?
