Warsaw climate talks: dirtiest climate conference on record

WARSAW, POLAND, November 22, 2013 – Commenting on the last day of the UN climate talks in Warsaw, where civil society organisations representing millions of people around the world walked out of the conference in an unprecedented protest, Jagoda Munic, chairperson of Friends of the Earth International said: “The only success of the dirtiest climate conference on record is the fact that civil society walked out and started a domino effect already reaching our home countries, where ordinary citizens are joining the struggle for climate justice.”

“In order to avoid catastrophic climate change, we must first ensure that corporate polluters such as Shell and ArcelorMittal do not interfere and prevent progress at future UN climate talks,” she added.


Dipti Bhatnagar, Friends of the Earth International Climate Justice and Energy coordinator said:

 

“Industrialised countries, which have done the most to cause climate change, are trying to walk away from their legal and moral obligations to take ambitious action under the UN climate convention.”

“The biggest trouble makers at this conference were the 'Dirty Four' governments: Australia, Canada, Japan and the US. The Dirty Four must U-turn and commit to real climate action.”
