Germany The 180-nation U.N. Climate Change Conference reached a historic compromise agreement Monday to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions that contribute to global warming. Hut the United States renewed its opposition to the process, deep- eninii its isolation in the international community. The deal, achieved after intense nightlong negotiations, was greeted with thunderous applause and cheers more reminiscent of sports than of international diplomacy. But U.S. chief delegate Paula Dobriansky was loudly booed by observers in the public gallery at the conference's closing ceremony when, after declaring the Kyoto process on global warming unsound, she More patients refusing transfusions Surgeries going 'bloodless' , " -X " - : " -1 i L ir K Z I 9 m I - ' I Hy Kerry Mir-Snyder The Arizona Republic Before they climbed on operating tables recently, Evelyn Kacz-mar and Susan Stephens made the same life-or-death decision: No matter what happened, they would not accept a blood transfusion during their operations. They would rather die. I lospitals across the nation say they're getting more and more such requests from patients who either decline transfusions for religious reasons or because they're worried about the safety of blood supplies. The demand is spurring more hospitals to offer bloodless, or transfusion-free, surgeries. About 100 hospitals across the country perform bloodless surgeries, double the number of four years ago. Locally, Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center started a Transfusion-Free Medicine and Surgery program about two years ago, and performs about 40 such surgeries a month. There's so much interest in the program that the hospital is sponsoring a blood symposium in September at the Arizona Biltmore for doctors across the country. Doctors have always had a small number of patients, mostly Jehovah's Witnesses, who refuse blood during surgery because of biblical references to the sacred-ness of blood. But more patients in recent years are expressing concerns about the safety of the nation's blood supply. They're worried about the AIDS virus, hepatitis and reactions to transfusions. "It's a no-brainer," Kaczmar, a 66-year-old Jehovah's Witness from Scottsdale, said before her spinal reconstruction surgery See 'BLOODLESS' Page A2 Sherrie BuzbyThe Arizona Republic Surgical technician Sharon Davis uses the Cell Saver machine for recirculating pa: 3 Evelyn Smarts blood during spinal reconstruction surgery at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix. azjcentralcom Read about surgery and view videos of various procedures at Other airports cope with hazards like stadium By Hal Mattern The Arizona Republic Whenever David Rublin hears politicians wrangling over the proposed Arizona Cardinals' stadium near Sky Harbor International Airport, he thinks back to the white-knuckle flights he's taken to San Diego. Landing at that city's Lindbergh Field is an experience he dreads, especially when the plane seems to barely clear the Laurel Travel Center, a six-story parking garage that sits only 742 feet from the end of the runway. "I'm scared every time I fly into that airport," said Rublin, a Phoenix stockbroker. "The nlnnp flies between the build ings, and it seems like you are less than 50 feet above the parking garage. Then it just drops down to the runway. That's what freaks me out. Compared to San Diego, the Cardinals' stadium would be nothing."

They may be the first rented guard dogs in state history responsible for a man's death. Employees at Paradise Distributing Inc. near Seventh Street and Buckeye Road arrived about 7 a.m. Monday and discovered broken pottery and a trail of blood leading to a back fence. There, a man's torn body lay on the ground. Police said the man, who had not been identified Monday, suffered multiple bites and lost a "huge amount" of blood. "It's ugly," Detective Tony Morales said. "That would be a horrible way to die." The company keeps hundreds of clay pots in a lot surrounded by razor wire and contracts with All Breed K-9 Security for guard dogs after hours. "Beware of Dog" signs hang on the fence. Still, they've had about 50 break-ins in the past three months, Morales said. "We're doing what we can do to best survive in this neighborhood," said Greg Galloway, the manager. Cisco, a 5-year-old female, and Bronx, a 2-year-old male, were held at Maricopa County Animal Control Services as part of the investigation and a 10-day quarantine. All Breed, which didn't return calls Monday, did not have a kennel permit or licenses for the dogs, said Julie Bank, animal control spokeswoman. . "A dog that is trained properly to attack will stop biting when the person stops moving or when they start going back in the direction they came," said Nancy Herbert, owner of Greater Phoenix Dog Training Academy. Pope condemns embryo research Lobbies Bush during president's visit Associated Press CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy Pope John Paul II urged President Bush on Monday to reject research on human embryos as Bush weighs government funding for the science. Bush said, "I'll take that point of view into consideration." The Roman Catholic leader welcomed Bush to his summer retreat in the foothills southeast of Rome to add his voice to the debate over one of the most momentous issues of Bush's presidency. The president must soon decide whether to permit federal funds for medical research on cells from human embryos. "A free and virtuous society, which America aspires to be, must reject practices that devalue and violate human life at any stage from conception to natural death," the pope said with Bush sitting at his side. His admonition raised the political stakes for Bush, who aides say is likely to announce his decision next month. White House officials had said in advance that they didn't think the issue would come up. m 4 I s Associated Press First lady Laura Bush and President Bush meet with papal aide Stanislaw Dsiwisz and Pope John Paul II near Rome on Monday. t . .:if-JZJ'" ana m cnance r !
