Gordon Brown: Small number of countries held Copenhagen talks to ransom

Efforts to secure a legally-binding climate change deal failed last week because talks were "held to ransom" by a small number of countries, Gordon Brown said today.

Leading article: Copenhagen: our lost chance

Perhaps our expectations were too high. Yet we should be clear about what precisely was disappointing about the accord that was reached in Copenhagen yesterday, and what was worthwhile. We have known for some months that a legally binding treaty was most unlikely. The crushing disappointment was that the undertaking to sign such a treaty by the end of next year was dropped from the final document. What was achieved in Denmark was no more than the old standby of diplomacy: agreement in principle. That principle is important, of course. For the first time, all the nations of the world accept that climate change is a problem and that they must do something about it.

Copenhagen diary (11/12/09)

* George Soros, the Hungarian-American billionaire investor, wowed the conference yesterday with his bold proposals to provide up to $150bn to enable poor countries to use clean technology. All that is lacking, he said, is the "political will" to make it happen. Perhaps someone could suggest that Mr Soros lead the way himself? Come on George, it's for a good cause...

Copenhagen Diary: Missing mermaids, golf leaf and banned bottles

*Opening the summit, the Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen admitted that he had an apology to make: delegates had not received Little Mermaid statuettes in their delegates packs. Indeed, Rasmussen confirmed that a few cutbacks had been made on welcoming gifts. But the short-changed delegates were no doubt relieved to hear that the money had instead been put towards 11 scholarships for students studying climate change. Surely they would be better sending them on an IT security course?
