Copenhagen – The Final Mile: “It Makes No Human, Political, or Economic Sense Not to Act Now”

UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer speaks on the challenge and hope as the last five days of negotiations commence in Barcelona, Spain next week ahead of the COP15 climate summit in Copenhagen this December.

COP15 is where de Boer says governments must find a “clear turning point in the fight against climate change.” The recent talks in Bangkok show “that it can be done,” said de Boer. “All the ingredients for success are on the table. Now, all nations must step back from self interest and let common interest prevail.”

“The mark of the greatest human endeavors,” de Boer says of the coming days in Barcelona and Copenhagen, “Is the strength to push on through the final mile.”
