Quotes

Bridging the wealth divide will be paramount.   "It will not be easy. There is a lingering divide between developed nations...and countries that are quickly industrializing, growing middle classes, and demanding a quality of life long enjoyed in much of the West. Foremost among them is China, but other countries in Asia, Latin America, and Africa are also experiencing quick growth spurts....The majority of future growth in carbon emissions is expected to come from these developing nations, so rich nations often emphasize the role China, India, and others should play....The hope is to transcend this divide."  David J Unger in  The Christian Science Monitor
