Yesterday, the United Nations unveiled voluntary pledges from individual unindustrialized nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and work to deter climate change.
These commitments underscore the existing cooperation and commitment in the international community ??? from both wealthy and impoverished countries ??? to protect our environment and ensure the well being of all Earth's inhabitants.
The pledges from unindustrialized nations come after last November's Cancun climate summit, where an international committee planned a "Green Climate Fund" to provide underdeveloped countries with billions of dollars to reduce internal emissions and adequately prepare individual populations for the threats posed by climate change.
