A Climate Decision I Support

November 29, 2011

Okay, kind of support… Reason’s Hit and Run Blog has the pointer and the news. And here’s the whole press release from the UN.


The 2012 UN Climate Change Conference, COP 18/CMP 8 (the 18th Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC, plus the 8th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol), will take place in Qatar from 26 November to 7 December 2012.

The Republic of Korea will host a ministerial meeting to prepare for COP 18/CMP 8. Such ministerial meetings are a tradition in the UNFCCC negotiations


 The State of Qatar and the Republic of Korea will make joint efforts to globally promote and implement the green growth agenda at and in the run-up to the conference.

Well, that’s a load off my mind.  Let’s hope that all the decisions that come out of Durban are this momentus.  Really.  No, really.  I hope that this is the level of agreement that these folks stay at, and they otherwise stay out of environmental policy.

Reason does note that the temperature in Doha is in the 70’s in November, so we’re at least consistent in the desire for the conferences to be held in nice places with good food.  At least at the hotels and the night clubs.  I suppose that’s better than Vladivostok.  After all, if they had to stay inside, maybe they’d make more carbon emission cut demands.
