ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view that Great Britain and Europe as a whole will stay committed to curb greenhouse gas emissions and pursue anti climate change initiatives as a matter of political consensus regardless of whether or not the Copenhagen summit succeeds. However, the author speculates that a Copenhagen failure could imply in the long haul resistance and pressure against climate change controls and infrastructures which are associated with complexity and high budgets. The author also discussed policy change possibilities.
