Fossil of the Day award to Italy

We are worse country in the world according to latest congress in Poznan! 😦

Italy? But Italy has been so quiet here in Poznan!
Indeed, Italy wins First Fossil tonight for its delegation’s deceptive silence–even as their colleagues in Brussels and Rome do all they can to destroy the Poznan process.
Italy’s weapon against Poznan? Deadlock the EU negotiations by requesting revisions on the European Community’s Package on Energy and Climate. The Minister of Environment of Italy suggested that the 20% renewables by 2020 commitment is unrealistic because Italy cannot quantify the costs or trust the scientific basis for increasing the use of renewable energy. We think it’s unrealistic to expect us to swallow that excuse.
And it’s not just targets: By preventing a unified EU position, Italy is running away from any commitments on adaptation and technology transfer to developing countries.
Italy is so confident that its trickery will undermine the EU Package that its Minister suggested that EU targets should be reconsidered if no agreement is reached in Copenhagen. Is that what Italy wants? The failure of UNFCCC negotiations in reaching a final agreement next year?
Italy, it’s very clever. But the Fossil of the Day Supreme Command Council has eyes everywhere. Fossils for you!
