'Fast energy management deal' sought by world leaders

World leaders want to reach an energy efficiency and management deal that will reduce carbon emissions and tackle global warming by the middle of 2010, it has been claimed.

Janos Pasztor, climate adviser to UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon, is quoted by Reuters as saying that now that it has been generally agreed that next month's deadline will not be met at the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference.

He told reporters that Mr Ban has spoken with a number of heads of state and that the generally-held opinion was that the job regarding climate change should be completed sooner rather than later.

As such, he said that it appears that the timeframe for the new agreement will be "more like ... six months than ... 12", the news provider notes.

More than 40 world leaders - including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy - have announced their intention to attend the Copenhagen conference.
