As world leaders meet in Buenos Aries to discuss ways of reducing climate change, Britain's leading scientific body, the Royal Society is calling for more to be done to help developing countries cut pollution and produce clean energy.

This report from Julian Siddle:

Under the Kyoto protocol the burden of reducing carbon emissions falls on the industrialised world. Developing countries were exempt, as it was felt cutbacks would hinder development and add to the existing burden of debt. However as developing countries improve their technology, get more vehicles and power stations for example, their emissions are also going to increase, fuelling climate change.

The Royal Society says there must be a global initiative to tackle this now to help developing countries find cleaner greener power generating technologies in particular . The society's chair Lord May says this could be achieved through increasing the knowledge base, by training local scientists who will then be able to develop solutions appropriate to local needs.
