00:03:08 SOUNDBITE (English) ); Satu HASSI (Greens/EFA, FI); “The sad fact is that climate change negotiations progress far too slowly compare to the message from the science which says that we have only a couple of years left to make it possible that we limit global warming below 2°C. And the gap, where we are heading with current trends and where we should be in the year 2020, is huge". 00:00:26
00:03:34 SOUNDBITE (English) ); Satu HASSI (Greens/EFA, FI); USA is doing almost nothing, they have pledged no money and they have no binding climate decisions, they are not driving this process forward in any way. It's also true that China is the biggest emitter, so everybody who wants climate protection should also push China more than it's happening. Walking shot 00:00:40
00:04:14 SOUNDBITE (English) Matthias GROOTE (S&D, DE) Chairman EP Delegation “There' s a time pressure now, and we are running out of time, and I am glad to hear that the European Union fix the position on ''AAYouth'' because it's very important. And we have now a meeting with the Chinese vice-minister and yesterday we heard that the Chinese also announced that they don't want to use the EEAs, and this is a positive signal I must say and it s also positive signal that several UKs member states announced that they will donate money into the climate funds. So that means in summery we have now over six billion euros in the funds”. 00:00:43
00:04:57 SOUNDBITE (English) Matthias GROOTE (S&D, DE) Chairman EP Delegation “But European member states put more on the table as announced, so it's a good sign and I think other major parties have also to do something, especially the host Qatar. We expect something from the host". 00:00:18
