Monday (29 November) is the start of the the global meeting on climate change at Cancun, Mexico. It is the follow-up to last year's meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is probably the second biggest environmental event this year (after the convention on biological diversity meeting).
Of course, there were a lot of talk about it this last week. Some examples:
5 Gigatonnes - the gap between climate science and current climate cuts after Copenhagen?
Q&A: What Can Climate Negotiations Achieve in Cancún?
From Copenhagen to Cancun: Forests and REDD+
After the disaster last year, I have very little hope for anything meaningful from this meeting.
Update: By the way I am not the only one thinking this
