This has to be one of the most surreal quotes I have ever read. The United States owes China close to a trillion dollars. We are there hat in hand asking them to loan us more and our President calls them less wealthy? Please contact me when Washington returns to the real world.
Climate change pledges not so easy for some-Obama
DRESDEN, Germany, June 5 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday it would be difficult to convince less wealthy countries such as China to commit to pledges aimed at reducing global warming.
"It will be very difficult for us to persuade countries that are...less wealthy like China to take the steps they have to take to control carbon emmissions," Obama said a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the city of Dresden.
