Copenhagen climate summit: forests are a test for world leaders

Date : 16th December 2009, Source : The Telegraph (UK)



Ministers are close to reaching an unprecedented agreement on protecting the world’s forests at the Copenhagen climate summit. But even this – the most hopeful development so far at the chaotic conference – is being threatened by the fractious atmosphere in which negotiations are being conducted. An agreement is certainly overdue, for it has eluded all attempts to conclude one for more than two decades, while the trees have kept crashing down – dispatching countless species to extinction, drying up rainfall and water supplies and emitting as much carbon dioxide as all the world’s cars, commercial vehicles, trains, ships and aircraft combined.
