Point of no return – the Copenhagen Summit

Sept 2009  Point of no return – the Copenhagen Summit – The Independent
The importance of the international climate summit to be held in Copenhagen later this year cannot be over- emphasised; … after almost two decades of increasingly heated debate on how to tackle climate change, and notwithstanding the current recession, emissions of global greenhouse gases … are rising at a faster rate now than they have done throughout our history. … We have all the necessary policy tools and technologies to rise to this challenge. What we need now is political integrity, scientific candour, a public and business community that acknowledges they are part of both the problem and solution, and a press that resists the temptation for polemic headlines instead of honest reporting.”
