For more insight into the Durban climate change talks, let's go live to Professor Timothy Fridtjof Flannery, Chairman of the Copenhagen Climate Council in Seoul, South Korea.

Q1: With the conference entering its final days, some experienced delegates say talks appear to lack urgency -- This, despite the European Union saying it’s ready to begin the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol. What have this year’s climate talks achieved?

Q2: So far, it doesn’t look as if the divide can be bridged. The bloc of Least Developed Countries, the Alliance of Small Island States and the EU want a new legally binding agreement for all nations. But some big emitters, including Brazil, India and the US, are holding out for a longer timescale. How do you see the future of climate cooperation between developing countries and developed ones?
