The face of the Cancún climate summit

A picture is worth a thousand words…

Hideki Minamikawa (shown above), a deputy Japanese environment minister, at a press conference at the climate summit in Cancún.

Minamikawa said 'it does not make sense' to extend the Kyoto protocol because Kyoto countries now account for only 27% of heat-trapping emissions.

This dilapidated cycle was seen at the base of a Mayan pyramid near Cancún. Though environmentally friendly, it probably was not a transportation favorite at the climate summit.
