UN Conference Adopts Global Climate Plan

The US reverses position and supports the Bali global climate change planning process.

"BALI, Indonesia -- In a dramatic finish to a U.N. climate conference, world leaders adopted a plan Saturday for negotiating a new global warming pact by 2009, after the United States backed down in a battle over wording supported by developing nations and Europe. The U.S. stand had drawn loud boos and sharp rebukes - 'Lead ... or get out of the way!' one delegate demanded - before Undersecretary of State Paula Dobriansky reversed her position, clearing the way adoption of the so-called 'Bali Roadmap.'

'The United States is very committed to this effort and just wants to really ensure we all act together. We will go forward and join consensus,' she said.

The sudden reversal was met with rousing applause. The upcoming two years of talks, which will hammer out a successor to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, could determine for years to come how well the world will cut emissions of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming. A year of scientific reports have warned that rising temperatures will cause widespread drought, floods, higher sea levels and worsening storms."

Joseph Coleman reports for the Associated Press in the Manchester Guardian Dec. 15, 2007.
