COP15 – the crucial conference
The ambition of the Danish government is that the COP15 conference in Copenhagen will result in an ambitious global agreement including all the countries of the world.

In Bali all parties agreed on the Bali Action Plan, and with that came the working conditions for the negotiations up to COP15 in Copenhagen. In light of this decision was partly the increased focus on quick action in the latest report from the IPCC. It was also partly a growing acknowledgement of the fact that 2009 represents more or less the last chance to achieve an agreement, if this agreement is to be approved and ratified in time for it to come into force after the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.

Developments in the world since the Kyoto Protocol was negotiated in 1997 show that a new agreement is needed. China has replaced the USA as the largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and the price of oil has soared. This is a reminder of the fact that fossil fuels do not merely pollute; they are also a source of energy whose reserves are constantly being reduced.

The UNFCCC’s history shows that countries can quickly move forward together, but also that they risk coming to a standstill because of internal disagreement.

Thank you Oliver
This really concerns everyone globally because it addresses all the issues of the current global crisis.

So thank you for your swift response. I'm going to start another one for the TckTckTck which is the biggest global alliance the world has ever seen. So I hope you join as well and vote in their fantastic campaign "I Am Ready"

Great job, Narda!

People need to become aware of what will happen in Copenhagen next month.
