The United Nations Climate Change Conference launched with great fanfare this morning in Copenhagen, Denmark. With an increasing number of world leaders now committing to attend the conference in the next 12 days, there's a corresponding increase in hope among organizers that a new accord on climate change can be reached.
A lot of obstacles will have to be overcome to reach a new agreement, and international observers question the Canadian government's desire to see a deal reached.
In the lead up to the conference, The Guardian Newspaper said Canada "is now to climate what Japan is to whaling"
We'll have all the latest from Copenhagen and reaction from around the globe, on World Report.
