Ndryshime globale të klimës

Under the Kyoto protocol the burden of reducing carbon emissions falls on the industrialised world. Developing countries were exempt, as it was felt cutbacks would hinder development and add to the existing burden of debt. However as developing countries improve their technology, get more vehicles and power stations for example, their emissions are also going to increase, fuelling climate change.

The Royal Society says there must be a global initiative to tackle this now to help developing countries find cleaner greener power generating technologies in particular . The society's chair Lord May says this could be achieved through increasing the knowledge base, by training local scientists who will then be able to develop solutions appropriate to local needs.
