The world’s two biggest emitters of greenhouse gases are yet to reach agreement on emission reductions targets at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meeting in China this week. That is China and the US. The committee made progress on the issues of forestry, technology transfer and financing poor nations to cope with climate change but the two big payers blocked discussion on the key topic of emission reduction targets – a key feature of any realistic warming management plan. Obviously this is a very scary result… we need to reduce emissions now if we are ever going to be able to halt change. Hopefully China and the US will be able to rise to the challenge and lock in required reduction targets before the UN climate summit starting in Mexico next month.
