Mexico: Countries in talks over specific emissions pledges

Mexico: Countries in talks over specific emissions pledges
Specific emissions pledges are expected to be made by more countries this week, according to Mexico - the host of the current United Nations climate change summit.

Some 85 nations made specific pledges to cut their carbon emissions following the conference in Copenhagen last year, the Associated Press reports.

The Copenhagen Accord, which is not legally binding, said global warming must be kept within an acceptable two degree limit and has been signed by more than 140 countries.

Mexico's deputy foreign minister, Juan Manuel Gomez Robledo, said a number of countries have been speaking privately about making emissions pledges.

Very few details were given about which countries had been in discussion, but Mr Robledo revealed it included both industrial and developing nations.

The news provider reported the minister as saying: "There has been a clear message from some parties, and that would certainly be very good news."

Energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne is among those attending the 190-nation summit in Cancun and has already said he does not expect a binding agreement on climate change to emerge from the talks.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800273554-ADNFCR
