The United States, the worlds biggest polluter, stands alone in it's resistance to join the International efforts against global warming.
Nearly 200 nations attended the conference, with the US isolating itself from the balance of the attendees. The US has held firm to the belief that it
is "premature" to negotiate anything now, when Kyoto doesn't expire until 2012.
Environment ministers from 80 countries met on Wednesday for the final days of a U.N. conference on climate change that has been unable to crack U.S.

The conference of nearly 200 nations has turned into a polarized affair, with the European Union (news - web sites) and nations supporting the Kyoto
protocol to cut greenhouse gases in one camp and the United States, the world's biggest polluter, in the other.
