Oxfam today warned that EU countries must cut themselves loose from the US or risk losing a groundbreaking climate deal that has been two years in the making. A fair and safe deal can be struck in Copenhagen this year, but world leaders cannot wait for the US to play catch-up.
Oxfam called on the US to join Europe in laying its climate finance cards on the table as international climate talks opened in Barcelona today.
International climate talks (in Bonn, Germany 1 – 12 June) must ensure that a climate finance proposal meets the needs of the world’s most vulnerable countries, and negotiations must move forward quickly if a global deal is to be secured in time to avoid a human catastrophe.
