Representatives from 132 Developing Countries Walk Out of Climate Change Conference

The Guardian reports that representatives of the most of the world's nations walked out on talks at the Warsaw conference on global warming today after representatives of wealthier nations, including the United States, European Union and Australia, said they would refuse to discuss the question of who should pay compensation for extreme climate events before 2015.

Important story that frames key issues as to who in the world bears the most responsibility in addressing global warming.    Take a moment to read.  We will be spending a considerable amount of time on this in class next semester.

  1. It is disturbing how the goverment is unwilling to aid the green movement. The bottom line is so important that the planet can be ignored. We all have to live on the same planet so the other countries were justified to be outraged... Ironically enough recently Chinese goverment ran news shared 5 ways the toxic air pollution helps the Chinese people.
