With a united fight against global warming in doubt, Germany and Mexico have called on world leaders to get international negotiations back on track. That's why the two countries are co-hosting a three day climate conference in Bonn to lock in climate action by the end of the year.

Government ministers and representatives from 45 countries have met for the informal talks to lay groundwork for the next UN climate change conference to be hosted by Mexico in December. On Sunday, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the world needs to realize how serious the threat of global warming is. German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged the world has a long way to go in cutting greenhouse gases, and asked nations to be more ambition in their efforts.

Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, said, "I believe that one of the issues we will deal with is transparency. How will we reach what we are planning? Does everyone have the same measurement methods? There have already been initial suggestions which I appreciate very much, but there is surely still a lot of work to do."
