Center for Biological Diversity Statement on Secretary Clinton’s Speech
COPENHAGEN, Denmark - December 17 - Today in Copenhagen, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced U.S. support for $100 billion in funding per year by 2020 to help the developing world adapt to the impacts of global warming. The Obama administration has yet to propose domestic emissions reduction targets anywhere close to the 40 percent below 1990 levels that scientists say are required to avert the worst impacts of global warming.
Kassie Siegel, director of the Climate Law Institute of the Center for Biological Diversity, had the following response to Secretary Clinton's announcement:
"The United States may finally have pledged to help pay for more lifeboats, but without committing to meaningful emissions reductions, President Obama is still steering the Titanic directly toward the iceberg."
