G8 + 10 summit seeks consensus on climate change
International environmental ministers of G8 + 10 will meet tomorrow in Sicily to try to achieve consensus on climate change. President Obama's pledge to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 may be a catalyst, especially if the US is prepared to discuss specifics on how it intends to achieve that cut. The talks are part of the preparation for Copenhagen in December, when the Bali action plan anticipates a post-2012 deal will be signed. In addition to the G8 countries,China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, South Africa, Australia, South Korea, Egypt and Denmark will be participating. Planet Ark has more on the Sicily talks.
