Copenhagen could be postponed while US gets climate act together.

The incoming administration of the US will not have sufficient time to get backing for a coherent position at the Copenhagen conference on Climate Change, and will postpone the landmark agreement for a year, according to director of the International Emissions Trading Association, Edwin Aalders. Speaking at a conference in Sydney, Australia, on November 18, Aalders said that the US delegation to the conference in Bali last year found itself making promises to the international community that did not have the backing of the White House or Congress. Aadlers predicts that the Danish government will deal with the problem by simply postponing the conference.
