Climate Change, Terror on Agenda for 2nd Day of G-7 Meeting

After spending much of the first day talking about Ukraine, leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies shifted their focus Monday to global issues including climate change, terrorism and the threat from diseases such as Ebola. German Chancellor Angela Merkel aimed to get backing for a strong agreement on cutting back carbon-based fuels and renewing commitments to limit global warming to a 2 degree Celsius rise in temperatures, as well as providing $100 billion in aid to poor countries dealing with the impact of climate change. An agreement among the G-7 would send a strong signal to the climate change conference in Paris later this year.
