Emotions and Hopes High in Copenhagen for a Climate Deal
Most of the media stories are centred around the “leaked text” by developed nations that would widen the gap between rich and poor and devestate the world. I also read a wonderful first-hand account of the Africa civil society meeting where Sudanese leader Lumumba Di-Aping movingly outlined the consequences of an unequal and unfair agreement.
Looking for news closer to home, the National Post is reporting that Canada has been a “constructive negotiator” at the climate talks. However, with a second “Fossil of the Day” award at this summit – as part of a group this time – Canada’s negotiating team still needs to step forward and lead.
I finally found what I was looking for in this video from Tck Tck Tck – Hope. I hope that the spirit of these youth spreads to the delegates and negotiators in Copenhagen. I hope that our leaders listen to the 10 million voices urging action now.
