Obama, Nobels and Copenhagen

October 9, 2009

This, from the excellent “Climate Progress” blog:

We already knew that Obama was willing to attend Copenhagen climate talks,  
if he were invited.  In an exclusive interview, Andrew Light, Center for  
American Progress Senior Fellow and an expert on international climate  
talks, explained to CP that now, effectively, he has been:

Barack  Obama is now the third sitting president to be awarded the Nobel  
Peace Prize.   This is an enormous honor. The timing on this for those  
following the future of  a new international climate treaty could not be  
more critical.  The Peace Prize  is presented in Oslo on December 10th.   
The UN climate talks, where the agenda  will feature decisions on replacing  
the Kyoto Protocol which expires in 2012,  start in Copenhagen on December  
7th.  The expectation that President Obama will  now go for at least part  
of  the UN climate talks is enormous as hell already  be in Scandinavia.
