Climate change caused by greenhouse-gas emissions has become the greatest threat to Planet Earth. The impact of relentlessly rising temperatures is already apparent in frequent extreme weather events, people’s displacement and economic devastation. The North’s industrialised countries are primarily responsible for causing climate change, but its harshest effects are manifest in the developing South.
The climate conference failed to deliver an effective and equitable agreement on reducing emissions and will aggravate global warming.
SO low were the expectations from the global climate negotiations after last year's disastrous Copenhagen summit that nobody thought its successor conference would be a thundering game-changing success.
