Africa’s Climate Change Quest

African ministers meet to make stance on climate change.

We live in a time when countless goings-on in the world seem unfair, such as the use of animals as food. The situation in Africa is equally unfair and tragic. Seriously suffering due to climate change, yet being a country that lightly pollutes, Africa is trying to figure out how to make things better. Ministers from 10 African countries met Monday, August 24, to decide their stance on climate change demands for a UN conference to take place months from now. They are likely to ask wealthy countries to cut emissions by 40 percent by 2012, as well as ask for billions of dollars to compensate for the damage caused by global warming. African officials maintain that although they are looking to develop, they hope to avoid making the same environmental mistakes other countries have made.
