Quotes from the press conference

Quote from Kumi Naidoo, Executive Director: Greenpeace International
This is the year when climate change came to the USA. Hundreds of Americans lost their homes, and many tragically lost their loved ones. Food production was hit as a record drought withered most of the corn crop. And following Superstorm Sandy, a newly elected President Obama promised that in his second term he would take action to defend people from climate change. But here in Doha we see the same negotiators using the same blocking tactics; their callousness in the face of human suffering is unforgivable. Now is the time to change course; Obama could start by putting in place team of negotiators that takes the human cost seriously.
