Gormley 'disappointed' by climate talks

The Minister for the Environment John Gormley has said he is "extremely disappointed" by the climate summit talks in Copenhagen.

Mr Gormley, who has been at the summit all week, said the deal is not anywhere near sufficient to deal with the affects of climate change.

However the minister said: "The only good thing today is that the process is still in place and there's a commitment to further efforts towards an international climate treaty."
