“Its certainly possible that there wont be a deal in Copenhagen”, US climate change envoy Todd Stern told Britain’s Channel Four. So what does that mean? Is the US not participating in the summit? I was expecting that with the new US administration’s motto of “Change” that tackling climate change was one of its top issues. However from this statement it signifies that US are expecting this Climate talks to collapse as well.
On the other hand Britain’s climate secretary,Ed Milliband said he will be going “all out” in this Copenhagen summit. He also said that a new global climate treaty is “do-able”.
It is still uncertain if any outcome will come about, but it is important that a treaty be made before the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.
