ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues that are important for operators of fluid handling processes, including greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Last month at a two-week United Nation's conference in Montreal, delegates, including representatives from the United States, met to discuss international efforts to limit greenhouse-gas emissions. For the United States and Australia, the key sticking point is the idea of mandatory curbs on emissions. In addition, the United States is hesitant to sign off on any plan until large developing industrial nations, namely China and India, commit to an emissions program.
