The European climate debate - getting hotter

The state of our planet was definitely at the forefront of the political agenda this week in both Paris and Brussels. At Unesco headquarters in Paris, five hundred scientists from the intergovernmental panel on climate change, the panel which inspired the Kyoto protocol, warned that global warming was already on the march, and that humans were to blame. The French capital was also home of the two day international environment’s conference hosted by French President Jacques Chirac.
