No kidding. Clinton administration officials will unveil their own suggestions later this week -- and since a report released Monday shows that last year's greenhouse gas emissions jumped by 3.6 percent, environmental activists are asking the President to go no lower than the 5 percent minimum reduction. Big industry says there should be no reductions until the developed world is required to join in. Even Clinton's famed talent for finding the middle ground might be tested by this one.
