Worldwide petition to save Copenhagen summit

With only a few days to go, the Copenhagen climate change summit has not reached any agreements.

A consortium of churches, aid agencies, and campaign groups from around the world have drawn up the following Petition to the 110 Presidents and Prime Ministers negotiating in Copenhagen:

We call on each one of you to make the concessions necessary to meet your historic responsibility in this crisis. Rich countries must offer fair funding, and all countries must set ambitious targets on emissions. Do not leave Copenhagen without a fair, ambitious and binding deal that keeps the world safe from catastrophic global warming of 2 degrees.
