EU Summit in Brussels

Sweden Urges EU to Tackle Climate Change

Acting EU leader Fredrik Reinfeldt

The Swedish EU presidency is urging European leaders to use Thursday's summit to agree on hard figures to help poor nations tackle climate change, amid resistance especially from eastern Europe. As news agency AFP reports, leaders are split on how to share the costs, both within and outside Europe. They have already agreed on broad objectives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, vowing to cut them by 20 percent by 2020.

"I want a mention of a sum... let's see what is possible, it's coming close to the decisive moment, we're not ready yet," said Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. The EU is keen to enter international climate talks in Copenhagen starting December 7 speaking with a unified voice to encourage the rest of the world, particularly the United States and China, to commit to swingeing emissions cuts themselves.
