Ramesh does not see climate change agreement in 2010

By Teronpi

Beijing, May 9 (ANI): There is little prospect of a breakthrough in forging an international climate change agreement in 2010, said visiting Indian Minister for Forests and Environment Jairam Ramesh.

"So far as negotiations are concerned... the prospects of a breakthrough in 2010 are very, very remote," Ramesh told reporters here.

"I don't see any silver lining or any silver bullet anywhere which is going to lead to an agreement," he added.

"We may have a political statement in Mexico, in Cancun, we may have a little more detailing of the Copenhagen accord... but if you ask me whether we will have an international agreement in Cancun, the answer is no," the Dawn quoted him, as saying.

Major players also seem to have given up on the goal of a treaty by the year end.

The task before them is to agree to keep greenhouse gas emissions from rising more than 2.0 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the target of the Copenhagen Accord. (ANI)
