Day 10 at Copenhagen: Hedegaard steps down, tensions mount

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-12-16

Disagreements persisted at Copenhagen as Danish chair of the talks, Connie Hedegaard, stepped down, and Danish PM Lars Lokke Rasmussen took over. With two days left, can the delegates reach an agreement?

From Day 1 through to Day 12, FRANCE 24's correspondents at the Bella Centre uncover the real issues stirring the debate at the Copenhagen summit on climate change.

On the tenth day of talks in Copenhagen, Danish minister Connie Hedegaard resigned as the summit’s chairperson. As the differences between delegates become more pronounced, Hedegaard’s exit could be a bad omen for the Bella Centre. The debates continue and a consensus seems far off. Is an agreement still possible?

In this climate of intense discussion, China unites the G77 group, promising to invest in renewable energies, and secures carbon credits.

On the streets, the tension is palpable. Security forces are overwhelmed by the waves of protesters intent on storming the Bella Centre.
