Tuvalu's delegation expressed deep anger at yesterday's UN climate talks in Copenhagen over concerns that its interests were being ignored.

The Tuvalu delegation's demands for a legally binding agreement that would limit temperature rises to 1.5 degrees rather than 2 degrees have controversially split the developing countries group at Copenhagen. But the Tuvalu government's negotiator, Ian Fry, said people of the island nations group are likely to be among the worst affected by climate change and they are sick of being ignored.

Presenter: Eleanor Hall from Copenhagen

Speaker: Tuvalu government's Climate Change negotiator, Ian Fry
