WWF G8 Climate Change Scorecards 2007
The WWF Climate Scorecards report
provides a comparable snapshot of the current situation of climate policies and measures across G8 countries, covering recent and expected emissions, and key activities by G8 governments in response to climate change. New up-to-date information is also provided on the climate actions of the world's largest emerging economies – Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa.
The US and Canada are deep in the red in WWF's Climate Scorecards, which evaluate and rate each of the G8 countries' performance on climate change. The bottom ranking goes a long way to explaining US attempts to block progress at the G8 towards new UN climate negotiations aimed at stopping dangerous climate change.
