G8 and Climate Change: a Concession or a Convenience?

http://www.buzzle.com/articles/140857.html

Against Climate Change.

This article, at Buzzle.com, explores the events ahead of the G8 summit. The main point is that, without everyone involved agreeing, the plans to address climate change will falter. It's all about money - the US fears that it will lose jobs to other countries if it strides ahead with climate reform.

This article discusses the other ways of climate change as opposed to green house gases and CO2. It states that some particles from fumes and fires land on snow (dirty snow). These particles absorb more light and heat causing the snow to melt faster. There is also a link to the debate page where you can duscuss the issue further with others.

It doesnt take a side, it is more informative and gives balanced ideas.
