UK Foreign Secretary warns that the UN climate talks could fail
Foreign Secretary in the UK, David Miliband, doesnâ€™t seem to have much hope on the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference (Cop15) this December in Copenhagen, Denmark. Miliband even warns that the climate talks are in "real danger" of failing, the Independent reports:
Miliband put the blame on â€œthe complexity of the issueâ€, the economic recession as well as "suspicion" between the North and the South. In light of a diplomatic pr tour around Europe â€œto raise the issue of climate changeâ€ Miliband warned that if the world failed to come up with an agreement to cut emissions global temperatures will increase with 4C.
