"Countries Split Over Climate Measures"

From the Climate Summit in Denmark:

Small island states and poor African nations vulnerable to climate impacts laid out demands for a legally-binding deal tougher than the Kyoto Protocol.

This was opposed by richer developing states such as China, which fear tougher action would curb their growth.

Tuvalu demanded - and got - a suspension of negotiations until the issue could be resolved.
The split within the developing country bloc is highly unusual, as it tends to speak with a united voice.

"The main task of this (conference) is to adapt an agreed outcome from the Bali Action Plan [agreed in 2007] and we should very much focus on that," said China's lead negotiator Su Wei.

"We have a very valid system to combat climate change."


Hopefully more nations can see the real deal behind this corrupted event.

We all have our opinions on Climate Change, but either way you look at it, we as a species need to improve on how we live on this planet. We need a wake up call...sadly, these corrupted schmucks are only out for their own good and won't change anything to improve the planet's well being.

Watch the short video on the website's article as well, it's nice to see someone finally get the big picture behind this whole Summit.

I can't help, but laugh. I can't believe there are actually people spending gobs of tax money sitting in a meeting that are actually trying to make a deal at which temperature we need to stop the earth heating up too, and how many PPM CO2 the atmosphere should have.

This is just mind boggling that people are really this stupid.

It is pretty amazing that they want to change the planet's climate. The planet is in an evolutionary stage, let it evolve....not like they could do anything anyway.

However, we are destroying this planet, there's no denying it. From nuclear testing, severe pollution, destruction of the rain forest, and even severe population of our species, we are having quite the impact here on Earth and not in a positive way.

We should all be concerned about taking better care of this planet, that's just common sense. Anyone who believes otherwise, needs a wake up call. Earth is not invincible.

Just...the whole Copenhagen summit is hilariously embarrassing...and so is Al Gore.
