Mexico may host climate change meet

Mexico might host a conference that could lead to a deal replacing the Kyoto Protocol if December’s meeting in Copenhagen fails to do so, Mexico’s Environment Minister Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada said on Thursday.

“If Copenhagen misses the goal and Mexico is chosen as the host for 2010, maybe this will be the place where the decision is made,” Elvira Quesada told a session on climate change at Mexico Civil Engineering College. Earlier in the day, Dr. Polioptero Martinez, who leads the state-run Mexican Water Technology Agency, warned that some parts of Mexico faced average temperature changes of 4{+0}C this century, four times the change that wiped out Mexico’s most successful pre-Colombian civilisation, the Maya. — Xinhua
