UN Climate Agenda

Last year 120 heads of state and some 3500 members of the press gathered in Copenhagen to hammer out what was hoped would be a historic agreement to address climate change. With the glaring reality of the U.S. dependence on oil gushing into the gulf, climate change is on the minds of political leaders in a graphic way. Yet, to most COP 15 as it was called was a disappointment and as one UN official put it, it did not ring in the green economic revolution that many people had hoped it might. Nevertheless, some say it was an important milestone on the road to green growth. Tom Osborne interviews Ambassador Dessima Williams of Grenada which chairs the organization of small island states (AOSIS) to find out what progress is being made in the effort to achieve a legally binding agreement on climate change. Ambassador Williams will lead the AOSIS delegation when it meets in Bonn the first week of August to prepare for COP 16 which gets underway November 29-December 10, 2010 in Cancun.
