Australia ‘trying to kill Kyoto’

Emma Alberici; 15/12/09

Developing nations have staged a two-hour walkout at the Copenhagen climate talks, accusing the developed world, led by the European Union, Australia and Japan, of pushing to “kill the Kyoto Protocol”. The walkout was organised by the G77 group, which represents 130 small, mostly African nations. G77 chief Lumumba Di-Aping has accused the Danish president of the Copenhagen process, Connie Hedegaard, of siding with the United States and the rest of the developed world in trying to kill off Kyoto.
