Well, I haven't noticed a thread on the current UN summit on climate change.
We all know the arguments, atmospheric CO2 partial pressure is increasing and it's been linked to a year on year increase in global mean annual temperature. This is suggested to be linked with the recent aberations in global weather patterns including (but not restricted to);
Shrinking polar ice caps
Increase in sea level (projected, although there is evidence of a slight rise already)
Increased incidence of tropical stoms and hurricanes
Increased incidences of drought (remember France 2003? 10,00+ deaths)
as well as plausibly in the future;
increased range of malarial mosquitoes (into southern europe principally)
Strangley, not all nations currently recognise global change as a real phenomenon, and even many of those that do are not bound by the original Kyoto treaty, and it's unlikely that they;ll be bound by any new treaties.
The biggest releasers of CO2 are;
The US has withdrawn from Kyoto, whilst China and India are not required to comply because they are 'developing countries'.
