Here’s the final installment of our series of blog postings from Copenhagen over the last week.
Here’s an extract:
“A global climate accord committing the world to no more than a two degree Celsius temperature increase was finally agreed Saturday morning.
This was despite the challenges that faced the proverbial cable car that UN climate chief Yvo de Boer had referred to this week.
Only on Thursday de Boer described the stop-start negotiations like a cable car that had made an unexpected stop but should now finish its ride smoothly.
Earlier on Friday, US President Barack Obama called for “an accord taking us further than one ever seen before.”
By Friday, the unexpected happened – the mountain suddenly appeared bigger as world leaders’ and delegations appeared radically split along North-South lines of developed and developing world responsibilities, accountability and transparency.”
