"Brazil, South Africa, India and China are urging developed countries to adopt more ambitious goals to reduce global warming."
The problem is that they are not getting behind a plan that will actually prompt developed nations (which have a big stake in emissions) to reduce.
Time for them to get behind a 'global carbon tax' rather than a 'regulatory red tape' route or this will be a waste of time. Kyoto showed that you cannot get a consistent agreement on REGULATION that will apply to all the countries of the UN and all their individual needs, advantages and governmetns.
So time to 'get back to basics' with a tax on carbon emissions (based on fuels) and let countries adapt their economies is whatever way they wish.
