Environmental Critics: US Must Take 'Urgent' Climate Action

As representatives of nearly 200 countries begin a two-week United Nations summit today in Qatar to discuss efforts to address climate change, Greenpeace warn that leaders must "take urgent action to avoid catastrophic global warming," and demanded they extend a cap to greenhouse emissions agreed to in the Kyoto Protocol.

The UN states (pdf) that the Doha Climate Change Conference must result in an agreement to keep the global temperature increase under 2 degrees C.

Some countries have accused the U.S. of hampering climate talks since the Bush administration pulled out of the 1997 agreement that limits emissions of greenhouse gases by industrialized nations.
