Grubb on the Darkest Hour

September 30, 2009

Michael Grubb, who has been doing this stuff for a LOOOONG time, has a piece on Copenhagen in the latest Chatham House magazine.

“The Copenhagen climate conference is less than three months away, alongside the energy and determination one can sense growing desperation. There is every prospect either of outright failure, or a broad political agreement that again re-emphasises high level statements about the seriousness of the problem, alongside decisions that convey humanity’s apparent inability to act collectively to address it. Unless, that is, a clever plan divides the talks into phases that set a basic structure, whilst buyingmore time in particular for America and China to resolve their fundamental tensions.”
