no one is satisfied

as ban ki moon said

sientists said that 2 degree is not in near from enough and that the g8 should care about us the people and not about theyr crashed bankaccoun

now they wanna beware the world clima from geting 2 degree warmer

why not just 0.2 or why not warmer
if the clima would get 100 degree they can sell new cosmonaute fashion and keep so the economy up

this g8 was nothing more then nonsence visited by idiots

what ever they did talk about it counts not for the people who elected thoese guys and it will bring nothing else then nothing

they should keep in aquila so we small stupid people would have a lot problems less

I think that Angela Merkel should take the lead in these climate change talks instead of Obama. she is more willing and determined to act more boldly on global warming issue as she shown already. Germany and some other european countries are way ahead of USA in fight against climate change.

Hala, I'm dissapointed with you breaking away from that live speech of Australian prime minister in your earlier edition of International Desk, we wanted to hear what he has to say, and what other leaders had to say. Obama is not the only most important leader.

It is important for us viewers to see and to listen everything that is happening on G8 summit. Instead, CNN is showing us another edition of world news, nothing new, same news that i have seen this morning,(it's evening now in my country) not so important.
Please next time, bring us live events and all speeches from G8 and other international conferences and summits.

With everything that's going on in the world (death, crime, unemployment, poverty, displacement, Iran, etc) the leaders of the biggest & emerging economies are worrying about climate changes that may or may-not happen? Surely there are bigger concerns for them (& us) to deal with right now.

Unless solar energy in great quantities can be harnessed and stored for industrial applications, a true “Green World” will remain a distant dream.

How come no one ever mentions the impact that WAR – all the explosives, bombs, nuclear testing, etc. has on global warming? Or does that not count?

Jack, sorry to disappoint you but unfortunately we're having a lot of disruptions in the climate causing extreme weather already. Plus we already have climate refugees and wars fought due to no-access to the necessities of living (like clean water, good soil, clean air). Plus who cares about the political non-argument in the u.s.a. about is or is not global warming happening. Climate and weather are not faith based events, the experience of anyone paying attention to nature or to weather, air pollution and natural disasters around the world are smart enough to know this is about survival not politics.

Sandy, I absolutely agree with you and I have been trying to raise the alarm, too. I don't understand any logical reason for the use of war . . . except as a money making proposition for those without compassion The destruction to the environment by military actions is going to be the hardest to clean up . . . and with lots fewer hands to help because they are dead or traumatized.

The G8 didn't give satisfactory solutions but at least they are talking about actions to take.

We have to do the work ourselves to clean up because a government bent on colonialism and the use of violence to solve problems is not a government I have much confidence in making the sweeping reforms necessary to solve the problem quickly and responsibly.

just some thoughts, v.
