Yet, perhaps as noteworthy as the increased focus in US media on climate change, has been the sharp break of many prominent Republicans at the state level and on Capitol Hill from the Bush Administration's stance on climate change.

If a major shift in Bush Administration climate policy ultimately occurs, it is likely to be due less to the President's reciprocating Tony Blair's friendship and private pleas and more to his heeding the rumblings within his own party and the US business community.
