The Global Legislation Organisation (GLOBE) has published the results of a study into current climate change legislation in 16 major economies. A key finding of the study was that legislation is being progressed, in varying degrees, in all countries. Most of the legislative activity has taken place over the last year and a half. It said countries are beginning to realise that introducing legislation to act on climate change will not only minimise global impacts, but will be of national benefit too. The study concludes that an international climate change agreement may be possible when the countries are committed to taking self-interest actions.
