Clarity On UNFCCC

Clarity on the beast that is the UN climate talks from John Broder in the New York Times.
“Effectively addressing climate change will require over the coming decades a fundamental remaking of energy production, transportation and agriculture around the world — the sinews of modern life. It is simply too big a job for those who have gathered for these talks under the 1992 United Nations treaty that began this grinding process.”
“…the question of ‘climate equity’ — the obligations of rich nations to help poor countries cope with a problem they had no part in creating — is more than an “environmental” issue.”
