Historical Responsibilities

It is clear that the reason developing country Parties are running away from the Kyoto Protocol and pushing for a political settlement is because they do not intend to take any responsibility for global warming and climate change. this has been particularly evident in the run up to COP15 in Bangkok, and Barcelona. Ambassador Mumumba Di-Aping, Chair of the G77 has noted that “it is clear now that the rich countries want a deal outside the Kyoto agreement. It would be based on a total rejection of their historical responsibilities. This is an alarming development. The intention of developed countries is clearly to kill to protocol.”
