President Dmitry Medvedev is preparing to join over a hundred leaders at the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, which was stalled for nine-hours on Wednesday due to wrangles over the text to be used for the talks.
President Medvedev has said that talks on a new climate treaty that are underway in Copenhagen should not lead to a “witch hunt”. He said there has been unfair pressure put on countries rich in hydrocarbons.
As past experience has shown, although the Summit on Climate Change would probably come to a successful conclusion, it is unlikely to be backed up by future action, thinks Danish environmentalist Bjorn Lomborg.
While the UN Secretary General has told the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen that mankind is primarily to blame for global warming, 150 scientists have signed an open letter demanding hard evidence for that.
