Obama administration officials can leave the country, but they can't get away from conservative opposition to restricting greenhouse gas emissions in the name of global warming.

Newt Gingrich's group American Solutions has taken out an full-page ad in a special climate conference edition the Copenhagen Post that relays a "Message from America" to the American delegates, and all others in attendance, depicting the first words of the preamble to the Constitution and the statement that "In America, Mesdames and Messieurs, We the People Govern"--a reminder that no international agreement on emissions reductions is binding in America, unless passed as legislation or ratified as treaty by the U.S. Congress.

The ad will run the day before President Obama arrives in Copenhagen later this week, American Solutions said. See the full ad here.
