Video: COP 16, the Climate Change Conference Begins in Mexico

Delegates from more than 190 nations, and representatives of various non-governmental groups, are in Cancun for two weeks of discussion aimed at forging a comprehensive agreement not now, but at some future meeting.

But in his opening remarks, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the world may not be able to wait much longer for decisive action. He said climate change is already a reality for Mexico and the whole planet. He cited recent deadly floods in Mexico, Guatemala and Pakistan, as well as disasters in Russia and Africa as evidence that climate change is already disrupting life for many of the world's people.

To see a report from the conference, play the video below.
