chinadialogue has got hold of a copy of the G77 analysis of, and reaction to, the so-called ‘Danish text.’ The G77 is particularly angry because it believes the Danish text:
Would eventually kill off the Kyoto Protocol;
Creates new obligations for developing countries;
Creates new sub-categories of developing countries;
Allocates too much of the remaining atmospheric space to the developed world;
Tries to treat developed and developing countries the same way.
The G77, it turns out, is opposed to almost any similar treatment for developed and developing countries. It is, for instance, opposed to common international standards for shipping and aviation – despite these industries actually being in favour of international standards and differentiation being deeply impractical.
