After the G8

They agreed to fight climate change but there were no targets set for reducing the level of greenhouse emissions. Who will do it then? How will they fight it? So was it all just talk among the powerful countries of the world? It will be interesting to note what will be done. Many projects and endeavours are being undertaken by other institutions but the bottom line is for policy and decision makers to take action on the results. Hope any research results could be translated into understandable language so they can be easily adopted or accepted by the general public. But when? In the meantime, the struggle for a cleaner environment goes on, along with the struggle against the adverse effects of climate change in many parts of the world. Good if you can fight it, but sad for those who can't.
