It's the second report I've read on the Planet Under Pressure conference held in London. Jo Chandler of Sidney Morning Herald wrote: It focused on strategies to manage climate risk by enhancing the capacity of populations to withstand extreme conditions, while not giving up on efforts to stem emissions Good report with many references and quotes...We're happy to know that ''[It's a] new contract … between science and society.''

this is a clear summary of the state of climate change politic in the world now, and how it is and must continue to change to create realistic expectations and solutions to the environmental forces transforming the planet. the article points out that the connections between the major forces in human progress, economic, social and environmental must be recognized and interlocked together going forward. the failure of attempts to target climate change as its own problem seems to be accepted much more broadly. i

this is a pragmatic approach which may have greater success in problem-solving effects of climate change than what we've seen so far. we must hope that the recognitions expressed here can be used to acknowledge clear solutions better than what we've experienced so far.

This article is great because it provides and alternative perspective on the an current issue. Climate change has been a hugely debated topic for years and years. People all over the country and even world now are doing their part to try to help our environment before it gets worse. Some debates say that there is nothing we humans can do at this point, some say there millions of things we can do to help. I like how this article introduces a new way to approach the climate change.

This story shows the news values of currency, impact, and timeliness. It shows currency and impact because global warming is a very important and hot issue that impacts the entire world. It also is timeliness because the conference just occurred.

This is a factual report and in so much has little room for opinion apart from the odd remark or change of tone. However, it is comprehensive and covers the subject matter well without embellishment and engages the reader satisfactorily.
