The below web resources serve as a good overall guide and information for Copenhagen Climate conference, which was just concluded 6 days ago at Copenhagen, Denmark:
“In 2012 the Kyoto Protocol to prevent climate changes and global warming runs out. To keep the process on the line there is an urgent need for a new climate protocol. At the conference in Copenhagen 2009 the parties of the UNFCCC meet for the last time on government level before the climate agreement need to be renewed.
Therefore the Climate Conference in Copenhagen is essential for the worlds climate and the Danish government and UNFCCC is putting hard effort in making the meeting in Copenhagen a success ending up with a Copenhagen Protocol to prevent global warming and climate changes…”

Recently, we have been asked two questions by a member of the public: “Why does China refuse to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions even though it is the world’s largest producer of greenhouse gases? Also was the leaked document at the Copahagen climate talks really unfair to developing countries”.
