%uFFFD...The UN climate summit reached a weak outline of a global agreement in Copenhagen tonight, falling far short of what Britain and many poor countries were seeking and leaving months of tough negotiations to come.
- After eight draft texts and all-day talks between 115 world leaders, it was left to Barack Obama and Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier, to broker a political agreement. The so-called Copenhagen accord "recognises" the scientific case for keeping temperature rises to no more than 2C but does not contain commitments to emissions reductions to achieve that goal...%uFFFD(http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/dec/18/copenhagen-deal)
%uFFFD...Global climate change leads to an increased number of weather-related disasters such as floods and droughts, which cause food shortages and famine. However, agriculture not only suffers from environmental problems, it also contributes to them, through pollution, overgrazing, and release of greenhouse gases...(http://126.96.36.199/world-hunger/environmental-degradation-and-climate-change.html)
%uFFFD...Studies have shown that polar bears prefer medium to thick sea ice over the shallower waters of the continental shelf. However, as Arctic sea ice has retreated in past years, bears are forced to travel out further (and over much deeper and less productive water) to hunt from the ice edge. In the West Hudson Bay area, females are coming ashore up to three weeks earlier and thus losing valuable time to feed before denning. In both cases this leads to decreased weight and a decreased survival rate of cubs and older individuals. Years of sea ice decline correlate with population decline in the Hudson Bay and Beaufort Sea areas, trends which are most likely consistent with other polar bear populations around the world...%uFFFD(http://expertvoices.nsdl.org/polar/2008/10/17/polar-bears-and-climate-change/)
