Copenhagen political declaration lacks ambition, regrets PACE President

"The political declaration negotiated after the Copenhagen conference lacks ambition and does not provide any answer to climate change, based on solidarity and equity," said PACE President Lluís Maria de Puig. "Despite some progress, the failure to take concrete decisions in Copenhagen is a missed opportunity, given the size of the problem. I regret that the final result is so far from the proposals contained in the resolution adopted by the Assembly ahead of the conference," he added.
