Russia Says Extension of Kyoto CO2 Limits Makes No Sense

Russia said the Kyoto Protocol limiting greenhouse gas emissions shouldn’t be extended and countries instead should focus on forging a new treaty to fight climate change.

“From our point of view there’s not any sense to just continue because only a few limited countries have obligations,” Alexander Frolov, deputy head of the Russian delegation, said today in an interview in Cancun, Mexico, where 193 countries are gathered for United Nations climate treaty negotiations.

Envoys should focus on creating “building blocks for a new universal agreement” that includes all major polluters such as the U.S. and China, Frolov said.

The comment indicates divisions remain between industrial and developing nations about how to cut fossil fuel emissions as two weeks of UN-sponsored climate talks enter their final day.
