Greenhouse gas emissions to rise.
Delegations from 186 countries meet in Dehli for the eighth conference of parties to the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change from October 23, to define responsibility of each country in order to prevent ecological disaster.
They will meet in a background of an average rise of 6.8 per cent in emissions (over 1990) by the richest industrialised countries.
The gases which are of concern include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons and sulphur hexafloride will cause climate change that is temperature increases by 2100 could range between 1.4 degrees Celsius and 5.8 degrees Celsius, depending on emissions. Because of that sea levels may rise by 80 cm, inundating low-lying areas and smaller islands. The ice cover in the Arctic is down by 14 per cent; in the Antarctic, by 25 per cent.
