Climate change issue is about morals, ethics: Rahul Bose

A television station interviews Indian actor Rahul Bose (C), as he stands in line to pick up accreditation at a UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen, Monday.

The  Bollywood acor is amongst the many well-known faces who have flown to Copenhagen to push for a fair deal on climate change.

Thousands of would be attendees, including delegates and journalists as well as NGO's, stood in freezing temperatures for over 6 hours on Monday morning to secure a badge to attend the conference.

Many took advantage of the situation by conducting impromptu interviews , handing out NGO literature and networking with others.

"The essential issue on the climate change debate is one of morals, ethics and justice. If a group of people are responsible for 90 percent of the damage to a house, surely when it comes to the cost of repairs they should volunteer to pay 90 percent of the expenses," said Bose, also the brand ambassador for international NGO Oxfam India.
"Now is not the time for developing countries to budge from this stance - a stance well articulated in the Kyoto protocol. Indian leaders should remember that future generations are watching them closely," he said in a statement.

Besides Bose, celebrities like Danish model Helena Christensen and British actress Helen Baxendale are also here to take part in the protests.
