Here again the original email you can forward to your friends:

With just 2 days left, the historic Copenhagen climate summit is failing.

World leaders have begun the final hours of direct negotiations.

US President Barack Obama will hold talks Friday with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on the sidelines of a UN climate summit in Copenhagen, the White House said. The world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases, are among key countries that remain at odds on the final 2 days of a U.N. deadline for breaking a deadlock on climate change.

The UK Prime Minister has directly appealed for the building of a tidal wave of public pressure needed to reach a deal that stops catastrophic global warming of 2 degrees.

(Bear in mind that this means an average of 2 degrees, globally - that could mean one degree in some places, and over ten in others...and over ten in places where we don't want any more ice to melt..or communities to suffer..yikes...Ed..)

The campaign already has a staggering 11 million supporters -- over the next 48 hours let's make it the largest petition in history! The name of every signer is being read out right now in the summit hall -- sign on at the link below and forward this email to everyone!

We are making history in Copenhagen. A group of young people have sat down in the middle of the summit and begun reading the names of every person who signs the petition for a real deal. Another group is doing the same 'petition reading sit-in' in the Canadian Prime Minister's office, and rumours are that more such actions will happen today. On an emergency conference call with 3000 Avaaz members Thursday, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said:

"What you're doing through the internet around the world is absolutely crucial to setting the agenda. In the next 48 hours, don't underestimate your effect on the leaders here in Copenhagen"

Yesterday, millions watched the Avaaz vigil inside the summit on TV, where Archbishop Desmond Tutu told hundreds of delegates and assembled children:

"We marched in Berlin, and the wall fell.
"We marched for South Africa, and apartheid fell.
"We marched at Copenhagen -- and we WILL get a Real Deal."

Copenhagen is seeking the biggest mandate in history to stop the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. History will be made in the next 48 hours. How will our children remember this moment? Let's tell them we did all we could.

With hope and determination,
TravelMole Media Group and Avaaz teams
