Fate of world climate deal 'still in the balance.'

October 2009
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Oct2009, Issue 417, p50
The article reports that the potential to come up with a global climate treaty to succeed the Kyoto Protocol remains in the balance as countries prepare for negotiations in Copenhagen, Denmark in December 2009. The Kyoto and non-Kyoto countries as well as developed and developing countries remain to have differences over the issue of emission mitigation and funding for poorer countries. However, a compromise was indicated at the Major Economies Forum (MEF) in London, England in October.
