Addressing Climate Change 'Humankind Cannot Afford Negotiations Until 2020'

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban it is becoming apparent that, instead of making decisions, the global community intends to continue negotiating new climate goals until 2020. In an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE, Achim Steiner, the head of the United Nations Environment Program, calls the delay "irresponsible."
Achim Steiner, director of UNEP, calls on the EU to 'show greater conviction' in battling climate change.
