Summary

LONDON, U.K.-- A group of prominent European academics this week released a trio of reports aimed at reviving the stalled international talks on climate change. Their advice comes on the heels of a report by the U.K.'s Royal Society that questions the value of carbon sinks in absorbing greenhouse gas emissions, one of the major sticking points to those talks. The torrent of words reflects the vigorous debate over the fate of the Kyoto Protocol, which delegates will take up next week during a follow-up meeting in Bonn, Germany.
