STOCKHOLM (AP) — The European Union's climate commissioner says she hopes that President Barack Obama's renewed attention to global warming after the election will translate into greater U.S. involvement in U.N. climate talks.
Connie Hedegaard told the AP on Thursday that many Europeans were disappointed that climate change didn't get more attention during Obama's first term.
"But I hope that the re-elected president will pull his whole weight now into this area," she said "I'm absolutely sure that that could make a difference not only internally in the United States, but also at the international scene."
A new round of U.N. climate talks begins Nov. 26 in Doha, Qatar.
