Small nations disappointed in outcome of Doha climate change talks
Bernadette Carreon – Fourth Estate Cooperative Contributor
Doha, Qatar (4E) – Small island states have expressed frustration on the outcome of the United Nations climate talks saying that there is still a lot to be done in cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
Almost 200 countries, including Australia, agreed to extend the Kyoto protocol until 2020, at the Doha, Qatar talks.
However the Alliance of Small States is still concerned that climate change will wipe some of the low lying countries.
At the conclusion of the doha talks the protocol is the only legally binding plan for combating global warming.
China, India and United States refused to ratify the protocol but other developed nations locked themselves into the deal.
Climate Change Minister Greg Combet was quoted in news report that by 2015 he is optimistic that a broader deal will come up.
Rich nations locked themselves into the new agreement that included the European Union and Australia.
New Zealand, Japan, Russia and Canada said they were pulling out because the major emerging nations and big polluters, such as China and India, would have no binding targets.
Pacific island nations especially expressed disappointment with New Zealand.
Australia meanwhile is being called by small nations to take the lead in the future climate talks that will affect the island nations as the result of the warming of the planet.
.A recent World Bank report released in November warned that, if the global community fails to act on climate change, world temperatures will be 4 C hotter on average by the end of the century.
