Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt will meet for a climate change exhibition at the same time that a falsification scandal rocks the west.

The exhibition

The exhibition takes place on Monday Nov. 30 at 1:30pm at the Nanjing Library (No. 189, Zhongshan East Road). It is part of a campaign to help support the raising of awareness about climate change in China.

The exhibition explains the facts of climate change, the challenges we all face in tackling it, and the approaches that the European Union and China are taking together to meet this challenge.

Sez President Barroso: "Climate change is arguably the gravest long-term threat facing the world today. The scientific evidence is compelling that global warming is accelerating and will reach dangerous - perhaps devastating - levels during the course of this century if we carry on with business as usual. This challenge demands nothing less than an urgent and determined global response."

The scandal

Essentially, on Nov. 20, a hacker revealed confidential e-mails exposing attempts by global warming apostles to manipulate embarrassing info that countered their warming claims.

From the TimesOnline:
Inevitably, the affair became nicknamed Climategate. For the scientists, campaigners and politicians trying to rouse the world to action on climate change the revelations could hardly have come at a worse time. Next month global leaders will assemble in Copenhagen to seek limits on carbon emissions. The last thing they need is renewed doubts about the validity of the science.
Repeated President Barroso: "Climate change is arguably the gravest long-term threat facing the world today. The scientific evidence is compelling that global warming is accelerating and will reach dangerous - perhaps devastating - levels during the course of this century if we carry on with business as usual. This challenge demands nothing less than an urgent and determined global response."
