Canada Kyoto Protocol

November 28, 2011 by staff 

Canada Kyoto Protocol, Canada will not make further cuts in its greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol, and may begin formally withdrawing next month.

Though not a surprise, the news will anger poor countries that say the rich are reneging on pledges made 14 years ago when the protocol was signed.

They see the protocol as the only way to make emission cuts legally binding.

Also on the first day of the UN climate summit in South Africa, the UK was criticised over support for tar sands.

In the main conference hall, delegates heard South African President Jacob Zuma call for meaningful progress.

“For most people in the developing world and Africa, climate change is a matter of life and death,” he said.

“In these talks, states, parties will need to look beyond their national interests to find a global solution for the common good and benefit of all humanity.”
