isabel marant etoile sweater isabel marant etoile sweater Deal on climate change at risk as developing nations blast G8

A global deal to tackle climate change was in disarray today after China, India and other rising economi isabel marant etoile sweater c powers attacked the West for failing to do enough to cut their own emissions.

A day after the G8 summit of world leaders announced a plan to cut greenhouse gases by 50 per cent by 2050, the emerging nations rejected the proposal as a threat to their economies.

Gordon Brown hailed yesterdays G8 deal as major progress because the US and others had signed up to a statement vowing to consider and adopt the longterm target.

But today the leaders of China, India, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa plus Austra isabel marant etoile sweater lia, Indonesia and South Korea made plain that they wanted rich nations to cut their own emissions by up to 95 per cent by 2050. They also lambasted the lack of interim targets.

At the major economies meeting on the final day of the Japan summit, the G8 nations and eight other leading countries failed to come up with an agreement on the issue.

Their joint statement today said only that there was a need for deep cuts in CO2 and other gases but set no specific targets or deadlines.

The group of 16 countries and the European Union that together produce about 80 percent of the worlds greenhouse gases has been working for more than a year on trying to find a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol which expires in 2012.

The leaders of the worlds major economies, both developed and developing, commit to combat climate change in accordance with common but differentiated responsibilities, said the statement.

An American official said the broad agreement represented progress but environmentalists deplored the statement.

Urgent action is needed to tackle climate change and spiralling energy prices caused by our addiction to increasingly expensive and insecure fossil fuels.

Developing countries are hoping that US presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain will help break the impasse when one of them reaches the White House. Both men have pledged deeper cuts in US emissions.

But Chinas President Hu Jintao signalled that he would not tolerate anything that put the onus on China when it was producing much less pollution per head than the West and needed to drag its people out of poverty.

He said: Developed countries should make explicit commitments to continue to take the lead in emissions reductions. Chinas central task now is to develop the economy and make life better for the people.

Mr Hu also said Chinas per capita emissions were relatively low: A significant share of Chinas total emissions are subsistence emissions necessary to meet peoples basic needs.

The 16 nations are set to meet again in Copenhagen next year as part of a UN attempt to get a global deal on emissions.

Even with new pledges to cut US emissions from the US, the White House will still have to persuade Americans that countries like China and India are sharing the pain and will not get an economic advantage from lower targets.

Yvo de Boer, head of the UN Climate Change Secretariat, warned: What is find lacking is any kind of language on where industrialised nations, G8 nations, want their emissions to be in 2020. isabel marant etoile sweater
