UN Climate Forum Extends Kyoto Protocol

UN Climate Forum Extends Kyoto Protocol(Doha) – Delegates at UN climate talks in Qatar have agreed to extend the Kyoto Protocol until 2020, avoiding a major new setback. The deal, agreed by nearly 200 nations, keeps the protocol alive as the only legally binding plan for combating global warming. The agreement had been due to expire later this year.
The 12-day meeting in Qatar’s capital Doha overran by more than 24 hours because of differences over whether rich nations should have to compensate poorer states for losses due to climate change. The deal was finally agreed on Saturday after the 27-member European Union, Australia and several other industrialized nations signed up for binding CO2 cuts by 2020.
