This Just in from Nairobi re: Kyoto’s Future
As the international community meets this week in Nairobi, Kenya to formulate international climate policy, you can depend upon Climate Ark for extensive news coverage. Not without criticism, Climate Ark continues to support the Kyoto process [search] as an established mechanism to reduce emissions that can be tightened and expanded, rather than restarting international negotiations from scratch. Clearly India and China must enter the emissions caps, though just as clearly they and other developing countries should be allowed to emit more per capita then rich countries. Climate change will be averted or minimized only by dramatic emissions reductions, rapid embrace of renewable energy, an end to ancient forest deforestation and diminishment, and an embrace of energy conservation and efficiency. As individuals we must do what we can to achieve these goals, while leading our leaders to establish societal constraints that make living green more easy. Meanwhile, lets hope for enlightened global governance from Nairobi.
