US relents to Bali pressure
PNG led a chorus of strong protests in Bali, which ultimately led to the United States making a u-turn and joining consensus on the 2009 deadline for a landmark treaty to fight global warming.
After a strong speech delivered by Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare on Wednesday urging industrial nations to set targets on carbon emissions, PNG’s New York-based climate change activist Kevin Conrad led a chorus of protests against the US last Saturday, which led to US senior negotiator Paula Dobriansky changing her country’s stance and agreeing to the consensus.
Ms Dobriansky had earlier said she would object to the draft proposal on tackling climate change.
She said she had heard “many strong statements from many major developing country leaders on a greater role in helping to address urgently, this global problem.”
It “doesn’t seem it’s going to be reflected in our outcome here in the declaration,” she said.
The comments prompted loud boos from other delegations, exhausted after the 12-day talks on Bali, Indonesia, on forging a new strategy to fight global warming, entered day 13.
“We seek your leadership, but if for some reason you are not able to (lead)... please get out of the way,” AAP reported Mr Conrad as saying.
South Africa’s delegate excoriated Ms Dobriansky, saying her statement was “most unwelcome and without any basis”.
“Now is not the time to entrench ourselves,” said Tuvalu’s representative.
The US would have been isolated and alone if intense haggling did not lead to a climb-down by the world’s most powerful nation.
Ms Dobriansky drew loud cheers from the conference when she took the microphone and announced that Washington would “go forward and join consensus”.

This old fool hasn't a single creative thought in his mind.
Never did, never will.
It runs in the whole family.
