Time running out for climate for climate talks

Rift between developed and developing nations might be to great.


With just five negotiating days left before the global-war,ing summit in Copenhagen this December, the international climate community has tenpered its expectations and begun to look for a graceful exit.


Pressure on global leaders has been building since negotiators signed the 'Bali Road Map' in December 2007, which set an aggressive time-table that was supposed to conclude in Denmark with a treaty to follow the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.

Rich and poor countries alike have spent two years crafting climate policies and proposals, but deep divisions remain.


When irate representatives of developing nations walked out of a meeting with European officials in Bangkok earlire this month, many realised that even technical questions obout how to structure a deal might be out of reach this year.

Only one interim negotiating meeting remains ― in Barcelona, Spain, on 2-6 NoVember.

Even staunch optimists are now erthinking their definition of success in Copenhagen.


(… to be continue…)
