ABSTRACT
The article discusses global climate change. It cites an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report which confirms that global climate is warmer due to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It says that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper plans to cut Canada's GHG emissions by 20% and 50% by 2020 and 2050, respectively. It mentions the accord produced from the world leaders' summit in Copenhagen, Denmark in December 2009, which marks that no nation is obliged to reduce GHG emissions.
