Bush positions on top campaign issues

These were the positions of Republican George W. Bush on leading issues in the Nov. 7 presidential election campaign that finally ended on Wednesday with Democrat Al Gore's concession:


Bush opposes the Kyoto treaty, would give tax breaks for ethanol use and supports state efforts to reduce pollution from coal-fired power stations.

Foreign policy/trade:

Backs free trade but opposed the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and would withdraw from Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty if necessary to pursue missile defense. Would reduce U.S. military involvement in international peacekeeping, take a tougher stance toward China, backs close defense ties with Taiwan.

Biomass energy taps the past to fuel the future

Household rubbish, agricultural waste and disused mine workings have not always been seen as valuable assets.

But plant and animal matter, sidelined long ago by fossil fuels as a source of heat, are set to return as Britain's most important renewable energy source in the 21st century, according to British BioGen, the UK bioenergy trade association.

Meanwhile methane from landfill sites and old mine workings is also being harnessed as a fuel instead of wreaking direct damage on the climate.

Methane burns like natural gas if it can be captured, but otherwise goes into the atmosphere as the most powerful of all greenhouse gases.

By 2010, the European Union wants 12 percent of all energy consumed in member countries to come from renewable sources with three quarters of that seen produced by biomass.
