Ashton on Copenhagen

September 18, 2009

John Ashton has been doing the Climate Thing for a looong time, and is widely respected.

Here’s what the Washington Post has quoted him as saying on the prospects for a Deal;

“[It’s] is achievable, but at the moment it’s in the balance. . . . It’s in reach, but it’s not in our hands.”

And also

“Everybody who goes to Copenhagen needs to be empowered to take part actively in that negotiation, otherwise it won’t be a negotiation.”

Simplest way to scupper the talks without being seen to do so? Send the office junior, so the organ grinders who do turn up waste their time talking to the monkeys.

Sigh.
