Associated Press interviewing Yvo de Boer…

Developing countries don’t trust wealthy nations promises that they will help them meet the challenges of climate change, the U.N.’s top climate official said Monday, adding that means any new global warming deal must have legal force. The legal status of an agreement and whether nations will be sanctioned for failing to meet their commitments are contentious issues in talks on controlling the world’s emissions of carbon and other heat-raising greenhouse gases.

We live in a world of broken promises, said Yvo de Boer, the U.N. climate chief, told The Associated Press.  Developing countries are concerned they will commit to targets and not deliver.  He spoke as negotiators resumed work Monday on a draft agreement for approval at a major U.N. conference next month in the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
