G8 agree on 2-degree celsius limit

L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) - President Barack Obama and other leaders
at the Group of Eight summit have struck a new agreement on
fighting global warming.
The leaders said in a statement at their summit in Italy that
their goal was to keep temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees
Celsius.
Climate change experts have said such an acknowledgement was
significant because the G-8 has never prounouced itself on that
temperature goal.
