Bangkok starts on a despondent note

“Gap” in mitigation targets and period leaves UN hapless

Delhi: The Climate talks in Bangkok have started on a rather despondent note with the UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres reflecting serious despair in her statements about the future of GHG emission mitigation across the globe. Not only did she accept a possible gap between Kyoto Protocol and any future mitigation mechanism (either an extension of Kyoto or a new mechanism), she sounded weary about the voluntary mitigation targets that countries had put forth at the Cancun climate talks last year December.
