UK Climate Change Minister Seeks UNFCCC Reforms

Proposing UNFCCC reforms in the wake of weakly concluded emission target negotiations in Copenhagen, Miliband also suggested that the U.N. create a security council for climate change or one patterned after the composition of the World Trade Organization, SolveClimate reports.
