Baker Breaks Ranks on Global Warming
Houston: The former US secretary of state James Baker, a close ally of the Bush family, has broken ranks with the Bush Administration and called for his country to get serious about global warming.
Mr Baker, in a speech to an audience including a number of oil company executives, said "orderly" change to alternative energy was needed.
"It may surprise you a little bit, but maybe it's because I'm a hunter and a fisherman, but I think we need to a pay a little more attention to what we need to do to protect our environment," he told the Houston Forum Club. "When you have energy companies like Shell and British Petroleum, both of which are perhaps represented in this room, saying there is a problem with excess carbon dioxide emission, I think we ought to listen."
