Mexico agrees to carbon cap at Poznan

Mexico has agreed to cap greenhouse gas emissions and called on other developing nations to do the same. Mexican delegates at the Poznan climate change conference said they would cut emission levels from 2002 by 50 percent by 2050.

However, the reiterated that pledges by developing nations depended on the carbon trading system promised by wealthier nations.

"The economic crisis is serious; yet when it comes to climate change, the stakes are far higher," U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the conference. "The climate crisis affects our potential prosperity and our people's lives, both now and far into the future."
