Ever-Changing Climate of Environmental Rules and Regulations


Byline: Matt Johnson

BEFORE last Thursday's shocking events in London, world attention remained focused on Gleneagles where climate change and poverty topped the working agenda at G8.

Agreements reached there, and the progress they may allow, have been overshadowed by what happened south of the border.

A lot of attention - quite rightly - was paid to climate change issues and the way in which they are altering the environments in which we all live.
