Clarity On UNFCCC

December 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

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.”
