TODAY IN THE NEWS:
About Global Warming
AUSTRALIA faces having to make a hefty payout to help developing countries such as China and India cope with climate change in order to clinch a deal in Copenhagen.
Despite Australia facing a domestic Budget deficit of about $50 billion for the coming year, Climate Change Minister Penny Wong told The Sunday Mail from Copenhagen that Australia would have to contribute to so-called climate "abatement" funds if India and China were to come into the climate-change tent.
Reports from Copenhagen say industrialised countries favour a target of 50 per cent reduction of global carbon emissions by 2020 (compared with 1990 levels), but major emerging economies led by China have baulked at any such target unless it is made clear that rich countries will assume most of the burden.
I think that it would not be fair for Australia to help China or India.
I don't know how people can even think about this?
To help China or India is impossible, because China and India are so vast and both have the largest population on earth.
So I hope that they think about something else on how to get China and India motivated.
What do you think about this?
You can have your say if you want.

Global warming; are we doing enough to help the planet?
If today's news is anything to go by, we are far from solving this man made problem.
After some ugly demonstrations negotiations have resumed:
It's up to the bosses now. Years of international gatherings – from Bali to Bangkok to Bonn. Nine raucous, angry and confusing days cooped up in the windowless halls of Copenhagen's biggest conference site. The protesters in polar bear suits. The countless appeals for action – and the forecasts of the life-altering consequences of global warming if world leaders fail to come to a firm deal. It all comes down to the next 36 hours.
As more than 115 world leaders descend on Copenhagen to make the crucial decisions, what can we expect? Nobody really knows.
By 6pm last night, negotiators had produced a text so dense and unwieldy that the Danish prime minister, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, called in negotiators from the larger countries to help knock it into "laymen's terms for politicians". If they succeed, the main issues looming for leaders on Friday will be as follows.
I suppose we just have to wait and see if they will reach an agreement?
