Conference of the Parties (COP 17)

 

Very early or very late?

Either very early or very late?

 

As we draw near to the end of the first week, thousands of delegates from around the world are meeting in Durban to try and thrash out an agreement to unify the world in an attempt to tackle the problems of climate change in a way that is fair and equitable to all the countries and people of the world.

Discussions continue to remain fragile and poised with the pessimists suggesting that nothing will be agreed with the optimists confident that there will be agreement.

Leaders will begin arriving this weekend

Given the attendance, goodwill of many country leaders the reality is that agreement will fall somewhere in between in terms. As the majority of country leaders begin arriving over the weekend and early into next week, no doubt the pace of negotiations will become more frantic and the picture will become clearer.

A focal point for emergent green-technology

One measure that the world really does care must be the massive investment being made by the private sector from especially Europe, the US and Asia evident by the number of private companies show-casing their new clean tech products and services.

 

Literally dozens (if not hundreds) of companies show-case their clean-tech ideas here

The European challenge!

 

Europe has a big job to migrate away from fossil fuel energy

Linking to leading global clean tech players

I am linking up with a wide range of new global clean-tech companies with great new product ideas that clearly will help reduce emissions, raise productivity while improving the lives and well-being for Maori and indeed other indigenous peoples of the world.

Lots of follow up here! 

Kia ora and kindest regards,
