On to Copenhagen

EDF’s Poznan team is back in the U.S.

Before they even had a chance to recuperate from jetlag, team members have spent the last few days briefing donors, the public and other folks –not just on Poznan–but the marathon ahead en route to Copenhagen.

In the coming months, negotiating papers have to be drafted for a new environmental treaty intended to protect the planet–a giant undertaking which is likely to be one of the most complex treaties ever written.

It won’t be easy. Far from it.

Huge obstacles remain on all fronts.

But, with the momentum of the Obama administration and with more and more developing countries stepping up to the plate with their own plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, there is great hope for a productive year.
