In addition, a memo dated May 14, 2007 was recently leaked, in which the US Administration strongly criticised the German Government for pressing for emissions targets at the G8 summit; and rejected the German proposals outright (see: and the memo itself at:, PDF).

In another leaked memo dated March 02, 2007, the US Administration sought to ban US Government scientists from discussing climate change (or polar bears!) when travelling abroad, unless they first signed a statement of assurance that these individuals understand the Administrations position on these issues (see and the memo itself at, PDF).
