Published by Project Syndicate

2012-02-16 COPENHAGEN – One of the world’s biggest green-energy public-policy experiments is coming to a bitter end in Germany, with important lessons for policymakers elsewhere.

Published by Tehelka

End of Kyoto would mean nothing for the climate Dec 24, 2011 Shonali Ghosal Q: You are known to be critical of the Kyoto Protocol. Does the Durban agreement offer more hope than Kyoto? A: There’s virtually nothing but empty promises. The Kyoto Protocol will be a symbolic act to continue. As for the Green Climate Fund, they have provided the structure but there’s no money, which has always been the problem. The real meat of the Durban deal, the idea of getting a binding agreement in 2020, is basically just delaying tactics. They said that in 2007 with the Bali roadmap that they...
