Here's an example of one interesting development, from the BBC, February 20, 2007:
EU environment ministers have agreed in principle to cut greenhouse emissions by 20% from 1990 levels by 2020.That means at least 27 affluent countries, with a combined GNP larger than the US economy, are moving forward.
The ministers, meeting in Brussels, also agreed to seek a 30% cut worldwide if matched by other developed nations.
Germany is prepared to reduce by 40%.
Over at the Duck of Minerva, I recently blogged about the unique problem of China and greenhouse gas emissions growth.
