Cancun will put climate change talks 'back on track'

Cancun will put climate change talks 'back on track'
The United Nations' (UN) climate change summit in Cancun will not produce a binding agreement on global warming, energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne has claimed.

Speaking on the first day of the conference in Mexico, which is being attended by representatives from 190 countries, Mr Huhne said the summit will simply "get the global climate talks back on track".

Last year's summit in Copenhagen failed to produce a global agreement to come into force when the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.

The Copenhagen Accord states that a two-degree increase in temperatures is the upper limit for global warming, however, studies have since suggested this target cannot be reached.

According to the World Energy Outlook, released earlier this year by the International Energy Agency, collective national commitments are not enough to keep warming within the acceptable range.

Mr Huhne, who is among the UK delegation attending the talks, said: "We won't get a full binding deal in Cancun, but people and businesses around the world will be watching and expecting to see us prepare the ground." ADNFCR-1235-ID-800259689-ADNFCR
