A New Climate Deal is Achievable
COPENHAGEN – Look at the leaders of our time. That these are tough times can be read in the lines of their faces, and in their stern looks. Responsibility weighs heavily when your economy is in crisis and people are being laid off in huge numbers. Nobody bears that responsibility more heavily than political leaders.
Day after day, efforts are made to find a way to recovery. Lights burn late into the night in government offices around the world. So shouldn’t “that climate thing” wait for better times?
