Big Picture News, Informed Analysis

Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise has been watching the climate world since 2009. What she sees isn't pretty.

Pachauri: It’s Too Late to Fight Climate Change

If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.
Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate    Change, Nov. 2007

The above quote appeared in a New York Times article that also contained this paragraph:

Delegations from hundreds of nations will be meeting in Bali, Indonesia in two weeks to start hammering out a global climate agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol, the current climate change treaty. The first phase of the Kyoto Treaty expires in 2012. [backup link here]

So did Bali produce a successor to the Kyoto Protocol? No.

Did Copenhagen? No.

Cancun? No.

Durban? No.

That settles it, then. I guess we’re done for *wink*.

Happy New Year, everyone!
