No climate change deal in 2010

2 posts in this topic

The world is unlikely to agree a deal to stop global warming this year, the head of climate change negotiations has admitted, as nations meet for the latest round of talks.

The last meeting in Copenhagen ended in chaos after rich and poor countries failed to agree on the best way to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Environmentalists now say the last hope for preventing catastrophic climate change is if the United Nations agree a treaty in Mexico at the end of this year.

But Yvo de Boer, head of the UN body in charge of negotiations, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), doubted a legally binding deal would be reached in 2010. He expected the best outcome from Mexico would be if countries agree the basic architecture "so that a year later, you can decide or not decide to turn that into a treaty". The 2011 meeting is in South Africa.

It's not a national issue. Encourage green architecture to handle heating and cooling, to cut down on natural gas issues. Encourage the use of hybrids and electric cars, and encourage different fuel sources being developed. Not bio-fuel. Something not reliant on combustion at all.
