A hard-fought deal fixing a 2009 deadline for a new treaty to tackle global warming ran straight into trouble Sunday with the United States voicing "serious concerns" over its provisions. As negotiators headed home after two weeks of intense haggling, the White House complained that the agreement did not do enough to commit major emerging economies such as China and India to big cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

The United States has "serious concerns" about a deal reached at the UN climate conference in Bali, including the role of major developing countries in cutting greenhouse gases, the White House said in a statement.

The Adaptation Fund now comprises only about US$36 million but could rise to US$1-$5 billion a year by 2030 if investment in green technology in developing nations surges, according to the highest UN projections.

"Arresting the world's warming and protecting and restoring our natural systems are issues of life and death for much of the world's population." The first African woman and 'green' activist to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004, Maathai said the industrialized world needed to work with southern hemisphere nations to stop the devastation linked to global warming.

Amid growing frustration with the United States over deadlocked negotiations at a United Nations conference on global warming, the European Union threatened Thursday to boycott separate talks proposed by the Bush administration in Hawaii next month. Humberto Rosa, the chief delegate from Portugal, which holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, said the discussions next month would be meaningless if there were no deal at the conference here this week on the resort island of Bali. Germany's environment minister, Sigmar Gabriel, told reporters, "No result in Bali means no Major Economies Meeting." He was referring to the formal name of the proposed American-sponsored talks.

The UN's chief says that calls at the Bali climate talks for rich countries to slash their greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 may have to wait for later negotiations. "Realistically, it may be too ambitious" to set guidelines now, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told reporters on Wednesday, even as he urged the United States to be flexible. "Practically speaking, this will have to be negotiated down the road." The conference, which ends Friday, is being held to set the stage for negotiating a successor to the Kyoto Protocol, the landmark climate change treaty that expires in 2012. Ban called for the replacement treaty to be finalized by late 2009

Humanity faces oblivion if it fails to reach agreement on global warming, Ban Ki Moon, the UN Secretary General, said yesterday as the US and the European Union continued to scuffle over a successor to the ten-year-old Kyoto treaty on climate change. "The world's scientists have spoken with one voice: the situation is grim and urgent action is needed," Mr Ban said at a gathering of 190 countries on the Indonesian island of Bali. "The situation is so desperately serious that any delay could push us past the tipping point, beyond which the ecological, financial and human costs would increase dramatically. We are at a crossroads: one path leads to a comprehensive climate change agreement, the other one to oblivion."

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has opened high-level talks at the climate change conference in Bali with a call to action. He said that if no action was taken, the world would face impacts such as drought, famine and rising sea levels. Delegates are hoping to agree a "Bali roadmap" leading to further cuts in greenhouse gas emissions when the Kyoto Protocol targets expire in 2012. The US and Canada are among countries opposed to further binding targets. The UN itself wants developed countries to commit to cuts of 25-40% by 2020
