Small steps offer no respite from climate effects – Cancun failure?

Dec 2010  Small steps offer no respite from climate effects – Cancun failure? - BBC Viewpoint
“Kevin Anderson … evaluates the outcome of the UN climate summit in Cancun and argues that success at next year’s negotiations will not compensate for “failure” at previous talks.” He argues it is “time for those of us who work in climate change to refrain from finessing our analysis, and instead be as blunt and direct publicly as we are prepared to be privately? Until such time, policymakers will remain ill-equipped to embrace the science and escape the astrology; and next year’s negotiations in Durban and those the following year in Rio will be doomed to failure before they even start.”
