Rose Harris Googe “Obama Urges Poorer Nations to Fight Global Warming” Fox News 07/09/09 http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/09/obama-broadens-push-climate-change-pact/ This article largely covers a convention in Italy where leaders agreed that the participating countries would cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent, and global emissions by 50 percent. Obama, attending for the United States, explained that they didn’t find a solution to global warming, but that this was one step in the right direction since a goal has been set. There weren’t any specific goals set for the short term in order to reach this broad goal of preventing temperatures from rising 2 degrees. In the end, Obama is quoted saying that the United States, a large source for greenhouse gas emissions, will need to be an example. This article, although largely focused on the politics of global warming, needs to do more with the science behind it. The few random statistics that explain a global warming-heavy United States do nothing to give us an understanding of how we’re going to cut global warming

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
