Clinton tells nations US acting on climate

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is telling representatives from 16 major world economies that the U.S. is making up for lost time and moving quickly to address global warming.
At an international forum on energy and climate change Monday, Clinton said the U.S. is fully engaged and no longer doubts the urgency or magnitude of the climate change problem.
She cited the recent finding by the Environment Protection Agency that six greenhouse gases pose threats to human health as a sign that the Obama administration was taking action.
The Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate Change was announced in March by President Barack Obama. Its goal is to work toward a successful new international agreement to curb climate-changing pollution.
