China’s Intransigence Blamed for Breakdown of Copenhagen summit

China’s Blocking Tactics Blamed for Breakdown of Copenhagen summit

Leaders have gathered for the final scheduled day of the UN climate summit, amid uncertainty over the shape of any eventual deal.

A draft political agreement drawn up by a small group of countries including the UK, US and Australia was rejected during overnight discussions.China is proving to be intransigent in working towards an agreement.

It appears their intention has been to block progress and disrupt global unity on Climate Change and Global Warming.

Delegates described the situation as “confusing” and “desperate”. There is extreme pessimism that an agreement will be reached by the end of today, the last day of the conference.

US President Barack Obama flew in to a very difficult situation. He has berated the nations for being unwilling to reach an agreement and told the conference “not to talk but to act”.
