Bite size Cancun Climate Talks

The UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico started on Monday November 29th and will last until Friday December 10th 2010. Below I've pulled together some websites and articles in relation to the conference.

Guardian Articles
A very good article on the fascinating but tricky subject of climate change economics: Cancun and the new Economics of Climate Change

Article featuring Indian environment minister, Jairam Ramesh; a man not afraid to speak his mind and to call a spade a spade: Avoid US route: Indian minister says American  way is 'recipe for disaster

Article about America's all-or-nothing position at the Cancun conference: America Plays Tough.
(I have to admit that it is eternally frustrating that America, who is currently the biggest contributor to carbon emissions is also the country that's dragging it's feet the most about taking any positive action on climate change: must be even harder for environmentalist living there).

A good blog which regularly updates from the conference in small but concise entries.

And while you're at it, why not add your name to Practical Action's Face Up to 4C campaign, with its' highly impressive and sophisticated rotating photo gallery globe - try and see if you can find me!
