CBC News: UN climate negotiations are unfair, study finds

Click here to read in full @ CBC News:

The United Nations climate negotiations are “antiquated” and stifle progress, especially for poor nations, according to new research.

The research, published today in Nature Climate Change, argues it’s unfair that the number of delegates from some countries have increased while others have decreased, as this give poor nations less power to negotiate and lessens the effectiveness of their participation in general.

The study comes ahead of the 18th UN Climate Change Summit, where almost 200 nations will meet in Doha, Qatar, from Nov. 26 to Dec. 7 as they seek to extend the Kyoto Protocol.
