International Treaty on Global Climate Change Unlikely in Copenhagen Conference

It seems that the much-awaited agreement on climate change would be happen in the upcoming Copenhagen conference on environment in December. World leaders recent met in Barcelona to discuss about a possible treaty, but the meeting ended without producing any fruitful decision being taken. Leaders of developing nations could not yet reach any agreement over the share of their responsibility of cutting greenhouse car emission.

Maldives, the most endangered country who could be submerged in future if sea water level increased at the current rate, is very much disappointed as there is little hope left on a possibly treaty being agreed in Copenhagen in December. Upon returning from Barcelona, Dr Mohamed Waheed, the vice president of Maldives, has told the local media that there is not much hope on the treaty ahead of Copenhagen conference because there is little possibility of the bill being passed in Congress by December. According to this bill, carbon emission would be reduced by 20 percent by 2020.
