The second and final week of the UN climate negotiations in Durban, South Africa is now underway. Canada’s priorities in the talks are captured pretty well by the following quote from Minister Kent:
Our fixation, our commitment is on Copenhagen and the Cancun agreement. We believe that ultimately a new agreement that includes all of the world’s major emitters in both the developing and the developed world is the only way to materially reduce annual megatonnage to the point that we can work to prevent global warming hitting or exceeding two … degrees.
