The British Parliament passed a massive piece of global warming legislation Wednesday. The Register newspaper reports the House of Commons spent six hours debating a bill to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent over the next four decades.
But this debate over the need for immediate action to deal with the rapidly developing dangers of global warming occurred as Londoners experienced their first October snowfall since 1922. A blanket of snow covered the Parliament as the bill passed on its third reading 463 votes to three.
But, The Register states that recent polling indicates 60 percent of the British public now doubts man's influence on global warming.
