Cancun Conference - It is Worse than We Thought!
In the absence of any real agreement of ways to limit "CO2 temperature rise" to 2 degrees C the meeting of the brains in Cancun have decided "it is worse than we thought " and we should adopt a more stringent approach and propose a target of 1.5 deg C which would need more draconian action, agreement to which will also not be forthcoming.
CLIMATE Change Minister Greg Combet is in talks to set up a fund to help developing nations cope with the impact of greenhouse gases.
Mr Combet started work at the UN conference on climate change in Cancun yesterday as Australia's co-chairman, with Bangladesh, of a new committee investigating ways to provide finance.
