I arrived in Cancun last night, and the clear message from the first week of negotiations seems to be all about the Kyoto protocol. Japan shocked many people here, and many people across the world last week when it announced it would not be signing up to a second commitment period. Kyoto is the world's only existing treaty that commits rich countries - those responsible for causing climate change - to cut their carbon emissions. If trust is to be built between developing and developed countries here in Cancun it is vital that the Kyoto Protocol is protected. The real... Continue reading

Click to Play Talks are back on track, or their original two tracks in fact. The few campaigners left inside the UN are now calling on the EU to lead the way with an ambitious enough offer on emissions reductions which would help pave the way towards a second commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol, and which would be enough to keep global temperature rises below 2 degrees centigrade. With new restrictions for NGOs on access into the climate talks, the Bella Centre in Copenhagen is a shadow of the noisy hive it was until yesterday. Most NGOs have prioritised... Continue reading
