The U.N. Environment Program reports that as of June 21, 1993, 166 governments had signed the Framework Convention on Climate Change. Of these, 26 had ratified out of the 50 needed before the convention can go into effect. The U.S. organization Natural Resources Defense Council predicts that over 40 more countries will ratify by the end of this year, sufficient to make the treaty legally binding (Intl. Environ. Rptr., p. 431, June 16). However, at a press conference in London, the World Wide Fund for Nature charged that governments have not come up with the financial commitments they made a year ago at the Earth Summit for preventing global warming and protecting forests and endangered species (Chem. Eng. News, pp. 5-6, June 7).
