Copenhagen Basics

Posted by | December 13, 2009 15:38 | Filed under: Top Stories

World leaders join the rest of the summiteers in Copenhagen this week to work on plans to limit global warming and prevent catastrophic climate change.  Here are the goals:

-Agreeing how much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases each industrialized country should be allowed to produce and how much such major developing countries as China and India should aim at restraining the growth in their emissions.


-Agreeing how much wealthy countries should pay poor nations to help them protect themselves from climate change and to shift away from burning coal or oil, which contribute to climate change. These nations also lack the money to build seawalls against rising oceans, to cope with unusual drought and to deal with other effects of climate change.


Hopefully this world stage will spread information that will allow those living in the 19th century to acknowledge the importance of this issue in the first place.
