Representatives of 198 countries meeting recently in Port Ghalib, Egypt were unable to agree on the phasing out of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). HFCs in some circles are known as “super” greenhouse gases (GHG) because they have a global warming impact that is far greater than that of CO2. Increased use of HFCs in developing countries could counter the effects of current international efforts to curb CO2 emissions by 2050, some experts say....
