Help push the G8 on global warming emissions cuts

Global online campaign group (whom I've mentioned before) are running an online petition campaign to push the upcoming G8+5 summit in Germany to adopt seriously effective cuts to greeehouse gas emission:
From 6-8 June, the leaders of the biggest polluting countries in the world are meeting in Germany at the G8+5 summit. Between them, their countries produce over 70% of global warming emissions. But while climate change is the top issue on their agenda, the Bush administration is trying to prevent any serious commitment to action.
The Germans are pushing for the stronger cuts (inspired in part, I believe, by the success of earlier G8 targeted global warming campaigns), but is saying that the Bush administration is "attempting to derail any serious progress".

They've received 240,645 signatures. Help them to reach their 250 thousand goal and
sign their petition here.

A massive march on global warming in Rostock, Germany, is also expected, timed with the G8+5 summit. Let's see if the 'world' leaders listen.
