ECONOMIC SUMMIT


Item #d91aug53

According to several participants at the London economic summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations in mid-July, the United States blocked a commitment to reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 415-416, July 31, 1991). U.K. Prime Minister John Major had urged the United States to agree to a commitment, as indicated by a leaked document prepared for the meeting (ibid., p. 382, July 17). The final conference statement commits participants to developing an effective framework convention on climate change with concrete strategies to limit net emissions of greenhouse gases, and to developing a similar convention on world forests. Environmental groups participating in The Other Economic Summit (TOES), held every year at the same time, viewed the outcome as a setback for climate and forest policy. TOES is discussed in detail in New Scientist, p. 14, July 20, 1991.
