The conclusions about the success or otherwise of Bali are becoming clearer following the happy talk of politicians claiming that a good deal had been stitched up and that the US had compromised.
George Monbiot in the Guardian (17.12.2007) thinks we’ve moved backwards, while a report the The Independent says we have. The British government is planning a number of coal-fired power stations to meet the UK energy needs which a scientist says will put nails in the planet’s coffin.
So the great drama of Brown supporting the Bali agreement looks like farce. The announcement of wind farms was great, but there are plenty of other ways to develop sustainable forms of energy. The time to do it is now. It could be the last opportunity.
