Could developing countries walk out of climate talks?

INTERNATIONAL PRESS REVIEW: “It is one of the grim paradoxes of climate change that the nations most affected by it are those with the least political clout.” Could the solution be a walkout, asks the International Herald Tribune.

Nations on the front line of climate change want more of a say in the solution in Copenhagen, according to the International Herald Tribune. Now, they’re weighing up the power of a walkout.

There were increasing rumblings on Tuesday from African nations and other developing countries that this might be the tool they need to get noticed and be heard.

Leaked draft agreements show huge contrasts between how different countries envisage the talks concluding. One draft written by Brazil, South Africa, India and China differs considerably from another draft put together by Denmark which many say is shaped around the requirements of the US.

The special envoy for Papua New Guinea Kevin Conrad has said “if rich countries fail to put sufficient amounts of money on the table and do not come forward with promises to make deeper cuts in their emissions, many countries will want to walk out.”
