Brown calls for climate change action

Brown calls for climate change action
Gordon Brown is concerned that a new climate change agreement will not be reached unless his fellow world leaders focus more of their attention on the issue.

The UK prime minister has urged other leaders to go to the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen this December in person.

Although environment ministers will be present, Mr Brown insisted the matter requires the presence of world leaders due to its complex and momentous nature.

Writing in Newsweek, he noted that a deal is in "grave danger" because the negotiations are being carried out too slowly.

He commented: "Securing an agreement in Copenhagen will require world leaders to bridge our remaining differences and seize these opportunities.

"But I believe it can be done. And if it is necessary to clinch the deal, I will personally go to Copenhagen to achieve it."

Agreeing upon a framework for combating climate change after the Kyoto protocol expires in 2012 will be one of the main focuses of the meeting.
