Danish PM Urges Action at UN Climate Summit Opening
Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen has described the UN climate summit in Copenhagen as an "opportunity the world cannot afford to miss".
Rasmussen told delegates that the world was looking to the conference to safeguard humanity.
"For the next two weeks," he said, "Copenhagen will be Hopenhagen. By the end, we must be able to deliver back to the world what was granted us here today: hope for a better future."
Opening the two-week conference in the Danish capital, he told delegates from 192 countries a "strong and ambitious climate change agreement" was needed.
About 100 leaders are to attend the meeting, which is intended to supplant the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.
The UN says an unprecedented number of countries have promised emissions cuts.
