Copenhagen talks are still crucial

November 2009
New Scientist;11/21/2009, Vol. 204 Issue 2735, p5
The author reflects on the importance of the climate change conference to be held in December 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was announced by the government that time has run out on the possibility for delegates to secure a successor to the 1997 Kyoto protocol. The author says the most that Copenhagen can achieve is a political declaration which will lay the foundations for an agreement to be formalized next year. It is also mentioned that the Kyoto protocol will expire on January 1, 2013.
