Sopoaga said a UN-sponsored summit on climate change in New York next month was a chance to set the scene for real progress in the quest to seal a global pact on greenhouse gas emissions by the end of 2015. “We are caught in the middle, effectively, in Tuvalu. We are very, very worried,” Sopoaga told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
