World Leaders Agree to Agree to Plan on Maybe Setting Emissions Targets Sometime Soon

xin_152040601224298432511With the COP15 summit in Copenhagen looming in December and an uncertain haze hanging over any potential climate agreement, a number of world leaders have announced an agreement to soon agree on potentially planning on possibly establishing a climate treaty sometime in the relatively near future.

With President Obama making his first visit to China this week, the top two emitters of greenhouse gases in the world have pledged to “definitely possibly plan on agreeing on a mostly binding emissions target in the days, weeks, months and years following the Copenhagen summit,” a spokesperson for the Chinese government said.

A number of other countries have also signed on to the agreement to agree on an agreement, maybe. Germany, a leader in wind power and other renewable energy projects, has committed to considering the possibility of joining a climate treaty that may or may not be written by 2014. Italy and France followed suit shortly after Germany’s announcement, with an Italian government spokesperson adding they hoped to set a timetable to plan on the next meeting “soonish.”

In his weekly web address, President Obama stressed the need to combat climate change before some of the more catastrophic effects are realized. “Achieving energy independence, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and lowering our emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases are all inextricably linked. That is why I and other world leaders have come to a substantive agreement to discuss this issue again in the near future, with the eventual goal of possibly deciding on a course of action that might help. That decision will most likely come at a future summit, the planning of which we will set a date for when we meet in Copenhagen next month.”

    Simulation is key to human existence, so Singer shouldn’t be improper to endow one thing like Black Ops 2 with important power and potential.

    The Queens are almost like four parts of The Empress card’s personality.
    Just see the images and write down what comes to you when you see the picture.
    He should also know that predictions are never made on the basis of the meanings of one card we should draw conclusions from the coupled
    effect of two or more cards.

    Early economic issues, however, turned the “read it and toss it” philosophy into the “read it, then trade it for a comic you have not read, and then toss it” philosophy.
    From Tia Carmen’s love of telenovelas and use of folk
    remedies in Baldo to Yenny’s daily life in Puerto Rico, readers gain tidbits of culture while developing their language skills.
    Much like the film and television industries possess the unique coupling of stories, and sometimes
    graphic art, with live action, or moving pictures, comic books are unique in the way they present a story.
