U.N. talks on a new climate pact resumed Monday in oil and gas-rich Qatar, where negotiators from nearly 200 countries will discuss fighting global warming and helping poor nations adapt to it. The two-decade-old talks have not fulfilled their main purpose: reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say are warming the planet. (AP Photo/Osama Faisal)

    FILE - In this May 3, 2012 file photo, anti-nuclear activists, Taro Fuchigami, right, Taichi Masakiyo, center, and an unidentified Buddhist monk, stage a hunger strike in a tent in front of Japan's Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry in Tokyo against the government's plan to restart the Oi nuclear power plant in western Japan. The Fukushima crisis is eroding years of Japanese efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming, as power plants running on oil and natural gas fill the electricity gap left by now-shuttered nuclear reactors. Japan will be free of atomic power for the first time since 1966 on Saturday, May 5, when the last of its 50 usable reactors is switched off for regular inspections. The central government would like to restart them at some point, but it is running into strong opposition from local citizens and governments. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi, File)

    A labourer stacks firewood for use in a brick kiln as smoke billows from a chimney on the outskirts of Jammu May 2, 2012. With four times the population of the United States, an economy growing 8-9 percent a year and surging energy demand, India's race to become an economic power has propelled it to No. 3 in the list of top carbon polluters. India's greenhouse gas emissions will keep rising as it tries to lift millions out of poverty and connect nearly half a billion people to electricity grids.

    An Emirates airlines Airbus A380 comes in for landing over the roof of the Beijing Capital International Airport's train station March 6, 2012. The European Union's plan to charge airlines for their greenhouse gas emissions would rise dramatically to cost Chinese airlines 18 billion yuan ($2.8 billion) a year by 2030, China's civil aviation head said on Monday.

    This Sept. 19, 2011 aerial photo shows a tar sands mine facility near Fort McMurray, in Alberta, Canada. Alberta has the world's third-largest oil reserves after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela - more than 170 billion barrels. Daily production of 1.5 million barrels from the oil sands is expected to increase to 3.7 million in 2025, which the oil industry sees as a pressing reason to build the pipelines. Critics, however, dislike the whole concept of tapping the oil sands, saying it requires huge amounts of energy and water, increases greenhouse gas emissions and threatens rivers and forests.
