Solon: Kyoto Protocol to become a zombie

Solon: Kyoto Protocol to become a zombie

Pablo Solon at Climate Justice Now! press conference on Friday, December 9th:

"The KP will lose its heart. The promise of reductions by rich countries will be incredibly low until 2020 and will lead to a temperature increase of more than 4 degrees celcius. KP will turn into a zombie...and will continue walking on until 2020 just so that carbon markets do not disppear."

UPDATE: Latest KP document this morning has a second commitment phase going from 2013 to 2017, but unclear who it applies to, or whether it will make it into final agreements.
