The President laid out a framework for future measures he said would balance the need to curb carbon emissions blamed for increasing global temperatures. The specific policy would limit the growth of United States greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. Congress this year is set to consider several competing bills aimed at reducing the carbon emissions blamed for an increase in global temperatures. President Bush urged lawmakers to offer incentives to develop new technologies and to avoid tax increases, new mandates or demands for sudden emissions cuts. The steps were immediately dismissed as "grossly insufficient" by the Sierra Club and some democrats said the President's plan would be "too little, too late."
