IS DILMA DECIDING TO SIDE WITH THE BIG POLLUTERS SEEKING A CLIMATE TREATY DELAY IN DURBAN?

Dilma Rousseff

In a shocking development, the BBC reports:

The politics of the UN climate process are undergoing something of a fundamental transformation. Increasingly, countries are dividing into one group that wants a new global treaty as soon as possible - the EU plus lots of developing countries - and another that prefers a delay and perhaps something less rigorous than a full treaty. The US, Russia and Japan were already arguing for a longer timeframe. ...But BBC News has learned that Brazil and India took the same position.

AVAAZ says, "President Dilma is considering the unthinkable -- siding with the US and other big polluters at UN climate negotiations in Durban. We have to bring her to her senses before it's too late." Here is the petition.
