UN climate change chief worried about EU committment

Yvo de Boer, the secretary general of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, is worried that the European Union nations may miss deadlines on emission cuts.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said, at an EU summit, that the group was still targeting greenhouse gas emissions reductions of at least 20 percent from 1990 levels by 2020. However, the bloc appears to have changed its position on coming up with a detailed plan by the end of this year.
