Climate Change: ''The Struggle Does Not Stop Here,'' Say Witnesses 16.12.2009 Truthout - All Articles

Copenhagen - ‘’Those who run the decision-making on climate change are the same who have caused it,’’ said Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the world’s first international climate hearing on Tuesday, pithily identifying the reason why justice has been elusive at the ongoing climate change summit in the Danish capital.
