World Leaders Pospone the Climate Change Deal

The Climate Change Treaty committee is delaying to 2010 or later. At the  behest of President  Barack Obama the world leaders agree push back the date from Mid-December meting in Copenhagen. European officials  stress that the delay is weak.

Officials say it legal issues is bogging down the talks; but it is  better to focus  on Climate Change solutions.

“Given the time factor and the situation of individual countries we must, in the coming weeks, focus on what is possible and not let ourselves be distracted by what is not possible,” Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen told the leaders.

“The Copenhagen Agreement should finally mandate continued legal negotiations and set a deadline for their conclusion,” said the Copenhagen talks host, who flew into Singapore to lay out his proposal over breakfast at an Asia-Pacific summit.

Rasmussen says the talks will focus on reforms for industrialized nations and finding ways to help developing nations greenhouses gases. The Copenhagen meeting will lay the foundation for new rules.
