Washington, DC [DOE EERE] The world’s eight leading industrialized nations-Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States-agreed on June 7th to set a global goal for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. During the annual summit for the Group of Eight (G8) in Germany, the leaders committed to taking “strong and early action to tackle climate change in order to stabilize greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic (human-caused) interference with the climate system.” The leaders will also “consider seriously” the commitment by the European Union, Canada, and Japan to cut global GHG emissions in half by 2050.
