The latest round of climate negotiations has been concluded in Bonn – and it seems that the Copenhagen meeting in December will have a greater chance of success.
This story by the BBC explains that two extra negotiating conferences have been added to the climate agenda between the next Bonn gathering in June and the actual Copenhagen Conference in December.
During the meeting, the United States has pledged more action and cuts in emissions. However, these suggestions fall short of the European Union’s pledge and the actual cuts needed.
As this interview between EurActiv.com and Swedish MEP Anders Wijkman suggests, there is some feeling that without a ‘good’ deal, the world might be better off continuing to negotiate. This may serve the world better than a ‘bad’ climate agreement.
