Merkel pushes through climate compromise

Peter Zerjavic comments on the climate deal reached among heads of state and government at the G8 summit in Heiligendamm. Under the deal, participants are to "strongly consider" cutting down greenhouse gas emissions by 50 % by 2050. Zerjavic points out that Angela Merkel doesn't deserve all the credit for the agreement. "The debate about measures to prevent an imminent climate catastrophe was an example of the growing influence of the general public on G8 decisions... G8 host Angela Merkel looked pleased with herself in the afternoon sun at Heiligendamm. After all, she's managed to push through a compromise to which all sides could agree. However, when the time comes for countries to start setting specific limits, the situation will be much more complicated than when it's simply about making a political declaration of intent."
