France, Brazil unveil climate policy

Ahead of key UN global warming talks:

FRANCE: France and Brazil adopted a common policy Saturday ahead of key UN global warming talks and vowed to launch a worldwide push to convince other powers to back their “climate bible”.

A joint text was unveiled after talks between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, which gave an outline of an agreement they want at the December 7-18 Copenhagen summit.

“We are making public... a French-Brazilian text because Brazil and France, we want Copenhagen to be a success, not a cut-price agreement,” Sarkozy told reporters in Paris.

“We are fighting for the world to live up to its historic responsibility,” the president added.

Lula hailed the text a “climate bible” and a “historic document”.

The text stresses the final objective of a “global reduction of at least 50 percent by 2050 compared with 1990” of damaging greenhouse gases worldwide.

For developed countries there must also be “ambitious objectives for reduction in the medium-term,” the text said.

Developing countries must also contribute to efforts to cut harmful emissions but in a “fair, global and robust framework” which should include “new and substantial financial support” for the poorest.
