Will Climate Talks In Copenhagen Lead To Job Loss?
Many world leaders will arrive in Copenhagen over the next several days to discuss and debate the climate, global warming and steps that should be taken to address concerns.
In fact, the 11-day talks in Copenhagen have already upped the Kyoto Protocol, which was adopted in 1997 (though didn't go into effect until 2005). The United States, India and China will be at the table this time.
According to a video on the Yahoo News channel (click here to see the video), many countries feel the U.S. is responsible for the rise in greenhouse gas emissions and should therefore take a leadership role in finding a solution.
President Obama will join the 15,000 participants at the talks to devise a blueprint for action. On his agenda, the President is calling for a 17% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and an 83% reduction by 2050.
Some say this could be a job killer. What are your thoughts?
