British MP urges UK Government to confront US.

N class=article id=mainHTML>Britain must act now to stop global warming or face dire consequences, a Staffordshire MP has warned. David Kidney, the Stafford Labour MP, used a one-and-a-half hour debate in Westminster Hall earlier this week to accuse the U.S. of being "in denial" about global warming - and to press the Government to warn President Bush on the issue.

"The USA is responsible for using about one quarter of the world's fossil fuels and produces a similar amount of the emissions of greenhouse gasses," he told MPs.

The MP called for "pressure" to be put on America, to admit the science of global warming is correct and "take action to reduce emissions of harmful gasses."
