Copenhagen needs a climate treaty

Copenhagen needs a climate treaty

Non-binding agreements to worldwide climate protection in Copenhagen will mutate into a disaster for international climate policy. Europe must not get involved in foolish gambling of international climate policy. The planet needs legally binding agreements to reach the climate goals now.

Copenhagen ending in a legally non binding agreement would be a slap in the face of those nations, which are already suffering from climate change. By not making clear financial commitments to development countries for climate protection and adjustment measures, the recent EU summit missed to anticipated the position of the APEC countries.

The European Left calls on the EU member states to stick to the agreements of CO2 reduction by 40% until 2020 and to legally agree upon them.
 
To support these demands the European Left calls upon all people who take climate change seriously to join the protests on the occasion of the UN climate summit.
