Negotiatorsfrom nearly 200 nations reached a deal inDurbanon Dec. 11, 2011, to work towards a new global pact to reduce carbonemissions. TheKyoto Protocolwas also discussed and would be extended for a second period of 5 or 8 years.

The challenge is that we begin the talks from the lowest common denominator of every partys aspirations.

—Jennifer Haverkamp, staff of Environmental Defense Fund said.

Its a middle ground, we meet mid-way. Of course we are not completely happy about the outcome. It lacks balance, but we believe it is starting to go into the right direction.

—Tosi Mpanu-Mpanu, head of Africa Group said.

Only a day after the Durban climate conference, Canada announced exit from Kyoto Protocol, and became the first country to formally withdraw from the Kyoto.

The Kyoto Protocol does not cover the worlds largest two emitters, the US and China, and therefore cannot work. Its now clear that Kyoto is not the path forward to a global solution to climate change.

—Canadas Environment Minister Peter Kent said.

Mr Kent doesnt understand what he is sentencing our children to. Catastrophic climate change will cost them far more.

—John Bennett, a Canadian environmentalist said.
