delegates worked through the night to reach agreement on key issues such as the Kyoto Protocol, but remain hopeful rescue plan

negotiations on a new climate agreement land through Friday night in Qatar, as countries could not agree on key issues such as: to save the Kyoto Protocol, the finance and compensation for poor countries suffering the effects of climate change, and how to structure a proposal for a new global agreement on climate change.

negotiations, which lasted more than two weeks, seemed destined to last Saturday. But the marathon session left many delegates hoping to salvage a deal in the middle of the frustration and confusion of the night.

"We have worked tirelessly and people realize that we need to go home with something," said one delegate.

The EU is understood to have proposed a deadline of 15:00 on Saturday (24:00 GMT) for the adoption of final amendments, but each time it has established to date the last days of talks have been violated.

Ed Davey, the secretary of energy and climate in the UK, worked all night, meeting with the Ministers of developed and developing countries in order to reach an agreement.

rumors and rumors flew against-the ministers met in small groups and two or three nodes to negotiate compromises. Some meetings were capricious, with delegates aware of the need to avoid a rupture, which would be disastrous for the image of these conversations with the world's eyes on the 195 governments meeting in Doha.

An agreement on the continuation of the Kyoto Protocol beyond the end of this year, when the first set of goals to end seemed at hand. In addition, an agreement to close a parallel set of negotiations following the established protocol entered into force in 2005, at the request of the United States, which has always rejected Kyoto. Close negotiations over unified begin work on a draft new global agreement on climate change, which would require the reduction of emissions of developed countries and developing countries. It would be signed in 2015 come into force from 2020.

One participant said. "It is as if the Qataris think this is a World Cup, but this is not a football game - it's serious negotiations on the future of the planet, they have not taken it to seriously - they have no control. "

Jake Schmidt, international climate policy in the capital of the Natural Resources Defense said. "There is a cultural gap between the Qatar team, and this process will be treated below them, do not drive too. Too. "
