On the one hand, developed countries such as the U.S. and some European nations insisted that today severe climate changes, such as the global warming was facing across the world and was serious enough to jeopardize people’s living situation. Therefore, they believe that people should take steps to prevent further environment deterioration, and the most urgent one is to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide. On the other hand, some developing countries represented by China and India, believed that although global warming was an undeniable trend at the present time, it had little to do with human activities. So reducing the emission of carbon dioxide was unnecessary and would contribute nothing to the environmental protection. To me, I am in favor with the developing countries’ opinions, that is, carbon dioxide has little to do with the current lifting of temperature and the global warming is not as harmful as those developed countries claimed. Developed nations have paid a lot of efforts to advocate the danger of global warming in the past few years.
