|Oral Parliamentary Question (OPQ)
|UN Conference (Poznan)
|I am grateful to the Minister for his reply. Given that the outcome of the Poznan conference represents a watering down of the commitment by European countries to prevent global warming or contributions to it from CO2 and yet the impact of any global warming-we can see this even if we are not climate alarmist, which I am certainly not-will fall most severely on the poorest countries, which have contributed least to the problem, does that not mean that our obligation to help them to adapt to change is increased? Does the Minister agree that the adaptation fund of some ?60 million agreed at Poznan was inadequate to the scale of the problem and the obligation we have to the poorest countries?
