Speaking to the U.S. Congress, Chancellor Abndres Merkel today called for international agreement to deal with global warming. She said it would mean breaking down the invisible walls of the 21st Century. This week marks the 20th anniversary of the breaking down of the Berlin Wall.

As the largest national economy inside the European Union, Germany has pushed aggressively for alternative energy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The chancellor met loud applause when she talked about being tough on Iran or staying the course in Afghanistan. There was much less enthusiasm from American pols for her insistence that there needs to be action on global warming.

With the Copenhagen climate talks starting December 7 there's agreement in advance there'll be no legally binding agreement reached there. And U.S. will attend with no new legislaton in place to cope with greenhouse gases.
