Maurice Strong And Supporters Gain Prominence For The Deadlock In Copenhagen Climate SummitDecember 17th, 2009 - 7:15 pm ICT by GD

Dec.17, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The deadlock in the Copenhagen Climate Summit has given an opportunity to Maurice Strong and his supporters to raise their voices. It has also given some politicians the chance to have a say in the global climate scene. Paul Martin, the liberal Prime Minister of Canada is one such instance. He has been a follower of Maurice Strong for a long time. Now he has got a chance to use the stalemate in Copenhagen to come down heavily on USA. According to him, USA ought to share some amount of responsibility for Greenhouse gas radiation from Canada.
The environmental activist groups including Greenpeace shouted slogans outside the venue of the conference. Martin gave his interview from a hotel in Copenhagen. He and his party suffered defeat in the elections that took place three years back. He expressed solidarity and support for oilsands producers of Alberta. Meanwhile, the green activists have become worried that due to the difference of opinion among the leaders of various countries, a unanimous conclusion on global warming prevention cannot be reached.
The leaders of the participating countries are trying their level best to put an end to the deadlock. The developing and developed nations are at loggerhead over certain issues and a conclusion needs to be reached before the summit comes to an end. They cannot agree on emission cut rates and the aid the underdeveloped countries should get. Danish police had to resort to batons and tear gas to drive way the protesters outside the conference venue when it got a little too rowdy.
