The article reports on the global negotiations on climate change. According to the article, the levels of greenhouse gas emissions aren't being reduced and the governments participating at the December 2009 Copenhagen, Denmark summit aren't doing enough to protect people from climate threats. The differences of the proposals on reducing carbon emissions offered by the industrialised nations are explored. The politics about the loss of competitiveness that dominates negotiations are discussed.
