The world famous fossil of the day returns for the UNFCCC COP16 Climate Talks taking place in Cancun, Mexico.
Japan wins the 1st place Fossil of the Day for reasons outlined below:
“When leadership is needed most, the home country of the Kyoto Protocol made a destructive statement in the AWGK plenary yesterday. It factually rejected the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol by saying Japan will not inscribe its targets under the Kyoto Protocol under any conditions or under any circumstances. Preferring a single treaty approach is one thing, but aggressively denying the future of Kyoto in open plenary is another.”
