For Immediate Release

OBAMA SAVING FACE, NOT PLANET

COPENHAGEN -- Friends of the Earth U.S. President Erich Pica had the following response to President Obama's speech:

"President Obama’s rhetoric is empty. The U.S. has failed to significantly improve upon the weak position it brought to these talks.

"This speech appears to be more of a face-saving exercise for President Obama than an attempt to unite countries around a truly planet-saving agreement.

"The United States came to these negotiations with a weak position, and now appears to be attempting to take the rest of the world down to our level. It simply must do better."
