Japan refuses to extend Kyoto protocol. The delicately balanced global climate talks in Cancn suffered a serious setback last night when Japan categorically stated its opposition to extending the Kyoto protocol the binding international treaty that commits most of the world’s richest countries to making emission cuts.
