Global warming could pose heart threat

A cruise boat goes by Sydney Opera House, in the background, and melting ice reliefs featuring caricatures of U.S. President George W. Bush, right, and Australian Prime Minister John Howard displayed on a truck during an anti-global warming demonstration in Sydney, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2007, demanding the two leaders attending the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit this weekend to ratify the Kyoto Protocol. A couple of environmental activists donning the animal costume drove the vehicle arround the city in a peaceful protest to oppose Howard's APEC summit proposal that may seek a broader, more vague goal, unlike Kyoto which required industrialized nations to set limits on their emissions of greenhouse gases.
