Statement by President George H. W. Bush prior to visiting the UN Earth Summit in Rio, Brazil. He says he’s prepared to stand alone against a key treaty to save endangered species. Bush says he’s proud of America’s record on the environment but he won’t sign up to everything at Rio at the expense of the American people’s standard of living.
