Tuvalu Delegate - Climate Talks "Going Around In Circles", Asks Extension Opponents To Leave Room
EDIT

The Reuters news agency reports that Tuvalus delegate Ian Fry told the gathering it appears climate talks are going around in circles and making no progress.

He says Tuvalu is concerned there is no guarantee that there will be a Kyoto Protocol at the end of this year.

Mr Fry urged nations that did not support an extension of Kyoto to leave the room, triggering applause.

Japan, Canada and Russia say they are opposed to extending the pact from 2013. The US never ratified Kyoto and says it will never join it.

1. My first thought is that those 4 should leave. Why should those who are >>>
>>opposed have a say in what the others agree to? It's just like the Republicans who insisted upon making amendments to various bills such as the health care bill but never intending to vote for it anyway.
