Climate change the second most serious problem faced by the world today

Europeans remain concerned about climate change and they believe fighting it can boost economic growth in the EU. These are the main conclusions of a special Eurobarometer survey of public attitudes which was published.


The Physics of Copenhagen: Why "Politics-As-Usual" May Mean the End of Civilization

Bill McKibben, "Most political arguments don't really have a right and a wrong, no matter how passionately they're argued. They're about human preferences - for more health care or lower taxes, for a war to secure some particular end or a peace that leaves some danger intact ... That's why standard political operating procedure is to move slowly, taking matters in small bites instead of big gulps....

The biggest decision - a binding international agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions - is likely to be pushed off until next December, when another round of climate talks is scheduled for Mexico City. Nevertheless, two weeks in Copenhagen will yield insights into global efforts to control industrial emissions and the warming of the planet."

The announcement by the Environmental Protection Agency was clearly timed to build momentum toward an agreement at the international conference on climate change that opened Monday in Copenhagen, Denmark...
