Doha 2012 Climate Change Conference

According to India's Business Standard, after six day of negotiations this round of climate talks has "failed to deliver results."


"The US said it would not raise its weak level of commitments to cut emissions. Australia put out its Kyoto Protocol target, under which it says it would reduce emissions by 0.5 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020. During the week, the European Union said they would not step up the pledge to cut emission. It has agreed to 20 per cent carbon emission cuts from 1990 levels for the period of 2013 to 2020, a target which has already been achieved."
