FOSSIL OF THE DAY AWARDS
Bonn, Germany, June 6, 2011
The Climate Action Network (CAN), a coalition of over 600 NGOs worldwide, gives out two 'Fossil of The Day' awards to the countries who perform the worst during the past days negotiations at the UN climate change conference.
The awards given out on June 6, 2011 in Bonn, Germany were as follows:
First place fossil goes to Saudi Arabia for using their pet issue of response measures to thwart the urgent need for progress.
The Saudi’s brought the SBI to a halt by reneging on the Bali Action Plan and the Cancun Agreements which clearly separate response measures from adaptation, seeking to hold the entire process hostage to its oily self interest.
