Gordon Brown basks in limelight of Copenhagen climate change summit 19.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Early during Gordon Brown's stay in Copenhagen, the competition among aides was not over who could rattle off the CO 2 emissions of Vanuatu or the height above sea level of the Maldives, but over who engineered Brown's Al Gore moment. On Wednesday night reporters having a scheduled drink with the prime minister were surprised to have their circle parted and the former US vice-president and climate change campaigner appear. "I know you guys have an election coming up and that the other guys have some responsible policies," Gore said, patting Brown's back. "But he has done more than any other world leader to bring momentum to this process." It was an endorsement Brown needed people to hear, possibly five months from an election which the ...

How the Copenhagen text was changed 19.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Haggling, fine-tuning, and late tweaks as negotiations continue National leaders and sleep-deprived negotiators haggled today over a text that could determine the balance of power in the world and possibly the future of our species. What direction did the talks take? The list below gives an item-by-item breakdown of the changes from the morning to the early evening. By the time the Guardian went to print, at least four drafts had been produced - but the negotiations were ongoing. Kyoto protocol "Affirming our firm resolve to adopt one or more legal instruments..." This bland sounding preamble, which appeared in the morning draft, is at the crux of the dispute: whether to continue a twin track process that maintains the existence ...

Gordon Brown hints at 'plan B' if issues remain unresolved 19.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Officials say the UK prime minister has prepared a back-up up plan involving talks between a smaller group of nations The UK prime minister, Gordon Brown, tonight held out the prospect of presenting his own slimmed-down agreement if the UN climate talks in Copenhagen remained unresolved by the end of the evening. Brown's statement came as diplomatic sources gave a heavy steer that China was the major stumbling block to a deal. The prime minister told reporters "there is still a lot of work to be done" to secure any international deal on climate change and said the remaining knots to be undone were whether or not China would agree to calls for the monitoring of its efforts to cut carbon emissions; and whether a long-term goal should be ...

Hopes for strong deal appear slim as stumbling blocks remain 19.12.2009 Guardian: Environment
Delegates hold out for prospect of weak political treaty that falls short of expectations as talks continue through the evening Hopes for a strong deal on climate change appeared slim last night with countries so far failing to agree on fundamental issues and blaming each other for the descent towards a humiliating end. Last-ditch efforts by the UN to get the 120 world leaders to at least commit to targets on temperature rises, emissions cuts and deadlines to finalise the treaty appeared gloomy, barring a late-night change in positions. With the talks stretching into the evening, some delegates held out the prospect of a weak, political agreement emerging, but on that would fall far short of expectations at the start of the two-week ...

Can Obama Sign A Climate Treaty Without Congress? 18.12.2009 Mother Jones
In 1997, in the Japanese city of Kyoto, the Clinton administration agreed to a groundbreaking treaty to combat global warming. And that's when the trouble started. The Senate had unanimously refused to approve the Kyoto Protocol, and in the end the Clinton administration didn't even submit it for a vote in the upper chamber. This made the US both the world's biggest polluter and, ultimately, the only industrialized nation to reject the accord. Now, as world leaders attempt to negotiate a new climate deal at Copenhagen, environmentalists want to avoid a repeat of the Kyoto debacle. That's why some green groups are urging Obama to do an end-run around the Senate and assert that his presidential powers empower him to commit the US to a climate treaty ...
