ABSTRACT
The article reports that representatives from six of the world's largest countries and pollution generators got together in Australia last week to try to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Government spokesmen and industry representatives came together from the U.S., Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea. While no concrete resolutions came out of the summit, U.S. President George W. Bush will ask the U.S. Congress for $52 million to support the partnership, and Australia plans to contribute $75 million over the next five years.
