EU urged to take tougher stance in Doha


At least 200 people were killed by superstorm Sandy in the US, Haiti and Cuba in October.

Damage estimates run to some 60 billion euros.

Some scientists argue this extreme weather is down to climate change – increased carbon dioxide emissions owing to the excessive use of fossil fuels.

Environmental lobbyists want the EU to do more in Doha. The UN-sponsored talks in Qatar is the 18th such conference on climate change.

Policymakers from some 200 countries are hoping to agree an extension to the Kyoto Protocol, that expires on the 31st of December.

They also disagree on how to implement the Green Climate Fund, of around 100 billion dollars per year, aimed at financing measures to stop climate change.
