African Nations Propose Growing Profits With Carbon Trading

At a meeting of 50 African nations held in Algeria in November, an agreement was reached that Africa should "speak with one voice" to pursue a larger influence in shaping the successor to the Kyoto Protocol, set to expire in 2012.    If these countries prevail, future carbon trading programs will resemble three-cornered stools, with Africa, previously left out of reaping most of the benefits of such programs, sitting pretty.
