Bill Hare on the Cancun Agreements
Climate Change verteran and adviser to AOSIS, Bill Hare talks about his concerns for the week ahead, in particular he emphasises that we need to get down to the substantive issues. He explores what the Cancun Agreements mean in practice, whether they are the high point, or a base from which to work. He talks about some negotiators want to stick to the lower targets, while others are calling for more ambition to reduce temperatures to a 1.5 / 2 % rise as opposed to current figures which will lead to a 3/4% rise.
