President Obama has already conceded that last week's midterm elections put an end for now to his "cap-and-trade" plan to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, but European officials fear the GOP gains mark the death knell for the broader campaign for a binding worldwide agreement this year to address climate change.
Mr. Ash said the administration's tough bargaining stance is "making it harder to come to a commitment and it's the opposite of what Obama said he would do, which is lead on climate."
Mr. Ash, a senior legislative representative for the environmental group, said the failure of U.S. lawmakers to act shouldn't affect the dynamics of the Cancun conference and argued that the "cap-and-trade" bills going through Congress, at least in the Senate, were not strong enough anyway.
