Urgente! La Conferencia sobre Clima en Copenhage temporalmente suspendida!

Los países del grupo G77 han decidido abandonar la Conferencia sobre CLima que está celebrando en Copenhage. Consideran inasumible el abandono de Kioto. Via Barcepundit.

News.com:

A plenary session, for all countries, has not started as planned because of the breakdown.

Senator Wong said she and others were working hard to get the problem resolved, but she could give no indication of when that might happen.

She did not support the developing countries’ focus on the need to commit now to a future for the Kyoto protocol.

“An extension only of the Kyoto Protocol is not going to achieve the environmental outcome the world needs,” Senator Wong said.

Australia does not want the Kyoto Protocol to be the only vehicle to tackle climate change because it does not include the US, nor major developing countries like China and India.

The Times of India:

The main sessions of UN climate talks in Copenhagen were suspended on Monday in a protest led by African nations and the developing countries accusing rich countries of trying to wreck the existing UN Kyoto Protocol.

“This is a walk-out over process and form, not a walkout over substance, and that’s regrettable,” Australian Climate Change Minister Penny Wong said of the action.

The countries were angry that the conference was weakening in support for the Kyoto Protocol, the core emissions-curbing treaty, they said.

The Huffington Post:

The G77, a group which represents 130 developing countries, walked out because it is concerned the existing Kyoto protocol will be abandoned.

Australia’s Climate Change Minister Penny Wong confirmed that organisers were trying to fix the problem and coax back the developing world.

Many countries at the UN climate summit want a brand new treaty to tackle climate change, but the developing world wants the Kyoto protocol to continue as well.

El País:

El arranque de la semana decisiva de la Cumbre del Clima de Copenhague no ha podido ser más caótico. Mientras largas colas de gente aguardan fuera para poder entrar en un centro de conferencias totalmente desbordado, dentro los países africanos, apoyados por el G77 de los países en desarrollo, han vuelto a dar un golpe en la mesa y han abandonado los grupos de negociación por la negativa de los países ricos a hablar de reducciones de emisiones obligatorias.
Al parecer, los países africanos se han negado a continuar con las negociaciones a menos que se priorice las conversaciones sobre el segundo período de compromisos del Protocolo de Kioto. Según Hobbs, ” Australia, Japón y otros habían conseguido paralizar las discusiones sobre el Protocolo de Kioto. De las dos vías de negociación abiertas en Copenhague, sólo la del Protocolo de Kioto incluye mecanismo para la obligatoriedad legal de las reducciones de emisiones por parte de los países ricos”.

BBC:

Negotiations at the UN climate summit have been suspended after developing countries withdrew their co-operation.

Delegations were angry at what they saw as moves by the Danish host government to sideline talks on more emission cuts under the Kyoto Protocol.
