Response to News Obama Will Go to Copenhagen

WASHINGTON - Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica had the
following response to news that U.S. President Barack Obama will travel
to Copenhagen in December to participate in international climate
negotiations:

"Solving the climate crisis requires leadership from the United States,
but thus far, the Obama administration has pushed for a weak and unfair
agreement. The President needs to do more than just show up; he must
ensure that the United States promotes real solutions, including
stronger emissions reduction targets and funding for developing
countries to deal with climate impacts and transition to clean energy
economies."
