Uncertainty in Copenhagen as new draft goes down badly
18 Dec 2009
The mood at the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen has changed from optimism to uncertainty, after a draft text from a influential group of world leaders went down badly with developing nations.
...Overnight, a group of 26 influential world leaders had worked on a text, a process which the Danish Prime Minister had described as both fruitful and positive.
However this morning, developing nations have reacted negatively to the text, apparently feeling that an agreement was being forced on them by the world's richest nations.
