Sierra Club activists bearing the flags of more than 20 countries bury their heads in Cancun, Mexico's, sandy beach Friday to symbolize their view of how United Nations climate talks are progressing.Just like how a year ago they couldn't leave Copenhagen empty-handed. Yet did.
The second week of negotiations kicked off Monday, with participants from 193 countries seeking to reach a deal that failed to materialize at last year's Copenhagen summit.
"We cannot leave Cancun empty-handed," Connie Hedegaard, the European Union's top climate official, told the AP.
These things are just too complicated. Just imagine if they had to get real jobs and couldn't spend two weeks at the beach during December.
