EU says ‘I do’ to the Kyoto Protocol
Today Time for Climate Justice campaigners called on the EU to say ‘I do’ to the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol at COP17. A blushing bride (Kyoto) and a handsome groom (EU) had they renewal of vows blessed as campaigners handed out wedding invitations and sweets that said I (heart) Kyoto.
The happy couple refused gifts but asked all Annex–I parties to join them in the renewal of their vows.
The couple waved and smiled and the bride even threw her bouquet to the watching crowds. The activity drew lots of attention as people had their picture taken with the wedding party.
Media from South Africa, China, India and Sweden came to film the event.
The EU must take this chance in Durban to sign up to a second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol and to encourage others to join them.
We wish the pair a long and happy second commitment periodNews, UN Talks
