G8 leaders agree to act on climate, air pollution

G8 2012 OFFICIAL LOGOAre we finally getting things right on climate change ? Not completely, but what happened last week may be a good omen for the Rio +20 conference. As I noted in a post published yesterday on Cleantechies :

” Further to the Camp David meeting last week, G8 leaders agreed to act on climate change and air pollution by focusing on methane, black carbon (soot), and hydroflurocarbons (HFCs). “

” This is the logical follow up of  a move in the same direction by the United States, China and other countries back to February. However, like the previous agreement, CO2 is still not mentioned. “
