45 Nations Join to Combat Global Warming

France issued a call for all nations to gather together in order to prevent global warming on Saturday.

Sources announce that, so far, forty-five nations have joined the group, excluding the United States and growing third-world countries such as China and India. French President Jacques Chirac expressed frustration at the abscence of the United States. "They are refusing to accept the consequences of their acts," he said.

The call for more nations to become environmentally aware came after a disturbing scientific report was issued on Friday. The report stated that global warming was "very likely" to be caused by humans and that even if the world were to begin being more aware, greenhouse gases would still remain in the atmosphere for several centuries.
