With the carbon tax a little over a month away, you would have thought that Australia was doing more than enough to cut carbon dioxide emissions. Apparently not, however.
CHINA has accused Australia of working to undermine negotiations for a new international agreement to cut global carbon dioxide emissions.
A new war of words between developed and developing countries over who should be responsible for cutting carbon dioxide emissions has threatened to derail talks on the so-called Durban platform being held in Bonn in Germany.
The dispute means high hopes for talks on a new, legally binding agreement that includes the US, China and India, agreed to in Durban, have descended into infighting between developed and developing countries at the first hurdle.
Oh, aren’t we just the worst! While we’re trying to sabotage climate negotiations, China are actively doing their part to secure the deal to stave off catastrophic global warming. It is a move of pure virtue and selflessness on the part of the Chinese and clearly has nothing to do with the fact that Kyoto favours developing countries.
