GLOBAL WARMING - CONCLUSION ISSUE SHOULD FOCUS ON SCIENCE, COSTS
Since the early days of the Industrial Revolution, people have worried about the consequences of atmospheric emissions resulting from economic activity. Global warming fears are nothing new. What's new is international urgency to do something about it. That urgency led to a May 9 agreement by a United Nations committee to limit emissions of heat-trapping gases. The agreement will serve as a rallying point at next month's Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
