Today at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali, Oxfam launched "South Voices", a video with testimonies from 63 people from developing countries who are already feeling the impacts of climate change.

The people featured in the video are already taking action to adapt to climate change, by making drastic changes to the way that they live their lives, but it is not enough, weather patterns are changing too fast. They need support from the rich countries that contributed most to climate change.

Statements by Antonio Hill on the United Nations Climate Change Conference that has ended today in Bali, Indonesia.

"Bali has for the first time drawn up a roadmap for all countries to tackle climate change. But a handful of powerful countries have relegated the overwhelming scientific evidence to a footnote. The Bush Administration—dragging Canada, Japan and Russia in tow—has thrown away the compass and is trying to force us all to take the journey in a gas-guzzling 4x4, not the solar-powered speedster that the world urgently needs."

Declaraciones de Antonio Hill, Asesor Principal de Políticas de Cambio Climático de la agencia internacional de desarrollo Oxfam, en la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático que culminó hoy en Bali, Indonesia.

“Bali ha preparado por primera vez una hoja de ruta para que todos los países enfrenten el cambio climático. Pero un puñado de países poderosos ha relegado aplastante evidencia científica a una mera nota de pié de página.
