EU leaders open a difficult summit, facing an East-West rift over'who should pay most to entice developing nations to sign up
to a new global climate change pact.
EU debates giving aid to
join climate change fight

Leaders 'have to
achieve agreement'
today in Copenhagen
BRUSSELS (AP) - The Euro-
pean Union fought yesterday
to live up to its self-proclaimed
leadership on combating climate
change, with the 27 EU leaders
at odds over how much to offer
poorer nations to join the global
battle.
EU nations failed to agree on a
figure for climate change funding
for developing countries during a
first set of talks yesterday, Swed-
ish Prime Minister Fredrik Rein-
feldt said, promising to make new
efforts to strike a deal on the sec-
ond day of talks here today.
"On climate, we are not ready
yet. ... We have not solved it," he
told reporters after leading talks.
EU Commission President Jose
Manuel Barroso said EU lead-
ers "have to achieve" agreement
today on offering billions of euros
to developing nations that would
prove Europe's commitment to
tackling climate change ahead of
U.N. talks on a new greenhouse
gas pact in Copenhagen.
The leaders did agree on a cru-

cial issue for the union's future,
diplomats said - concessions to
the Euro-skeptic Czech president
to persuade him to sign a reform
treaty strengthening the bloc's
diplomatic power and creating
the post of a fixed EU president.
Nine eastern EU states said
earlier that they would rather
walk away from the two-day sum-
mit without an agreement than
be forced into a deal for billions
of euros that would stretch their
budgets - even if that jeopardiz-
es a global climate pact and hurts
the EU's international image.
British Prime Minister Gordon
Brown warned against waiting
for a deal, saying the stakes in the
climate change battle are too high
to bicker over who should shoul-
der how much of the burden.
"Unless we have a program for
financing the action we're tak-
ing against climate change, then
we will not get an agreement at
Copenhagen," where the U.N. cli-
mate conference kicks off Dec. 7
aimed at replacing the 1997 Kyoto
Protocol, Brown said.
The EU executive says devel-
oping nations would need annual
help of eurol0O billion ($148 bil-
lion) by 2020, of which EU gov-
ernments and companies should

contribute up to euro4O billion 6
($59 billion).
The latest draft declaration the
leaders were discussing last night
had eliminated any mention of
fund targets. Reinfeldt said EU
nations needed to take account
of how badly many of them have
been hit by the financial crisis.
It is tough to reconcile current
EU hesitancy with Europe's early
ambitions on the issue.
The Copenhagen summit is
seen as a watershed moment for
fighting climate change and for
global cooperation, and for years
the EU has been seeking out the
moral high ground, challenging
other powers such as the Unit-
ed States and China to match
Europe's commitment.
An internal EU squabble over
funding could weaken the union
globally - and just look bad.
U.N. officials say a European
declaration on finance could go
a long way toward breaking the
stalemate in the climate talks. a
Developing countries are hold-
ing back firm commitments to
slow the growth of their carbon
dioxide emissions until they
know how much aid they can
expect to adjust to changing cli-
mate conditions,
