Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action, has made the following statement today: "It is absurd and unfair that the EU is accused of killing the Kyoto Protocol. On the contrary, the EU has consistently fought to keep it alive and still does. At the same time we work to ensure that the US and the large emerging economies take on binding commitments as they represent a very substantial part of the global emissions".
