Presidents Obama and Hu to name boats at the G20 and invite
President Barroso to present Paddles for Life

For the last fifteen years a set of outdoor educational and
sporting ideas have been developed in the United Kingdom to

focus of world affairs the Prime Minister should invite
President Obama to name the "Spirit of United States and
Energy-Climate Era" and President Hu the "Spirit of China and
Energy-Climate Era" at the G20 Summit in April. At the same
time the Prime Minister to invite President Barraso to present
Paddles for Life to President Obama and President Hu. The two
Paddles for Life have already been signed by the Prime
Minister, most of the Cabinet, the Leaders of the Opposition,
the Chinese Ambassador, President Barroso and people at every
level of society in the United Kingdom.

Thanks for submitting your petition.
