UN Talks to Review Where 'Dangerous' Warming Starts post #1  quote:



UN Talks to Review Where 'Dangerous' Warming Starts
quote:
A decade after the world pledged to prevent "dangerous" global warming, 194 nations meet next week to review whether rare heatwaves and a fast Arctic thaw may signal that the planet is nearing the brink.

The Dec. 6-17 U.N. talks in Buenos Aires will also seek ways to persuade the United States to rejoin a U.N.-led fight against climate change and also try to involve developing nations like China, India or Brazil.
[...]
The senior U.S. climate negotiator, Harlan Watson, said there was insufficient grounds yet to define "dangerous." "The bulk of the scientific opinion is we just don't know enough to be able to predict impact," he said.
[...]
President Bush pulled out in 2001 from the 128-nation Kyoto protocol, which seeks to cut greenhouse gas emissions by five percent from 1990 levels by 2012. Bush argued it was too expensive and wrongly excluded developing nations.
