Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

In our first is­sue, we re­ported about Earth Sum­mit, where gov­ern­ments agreed to the United Frame­work Con­ven­tion on Cli­mate Change. Since then we have been fol­low­ing in­ter­na­tional ne­go­ti­a­tions to­wards re­duc­ing car­bon emis­sions. But it ap­pears world lead­ers are not se­ri­ous about cli­mate change: most meet­ings end up in wa­tered down com­mit­ments; the North re­mains re­luc­tant to trans­fer tech­nol­ogy ("Copout", Jan­uary 1-15, 2015).
