The last day and night

December 10, 2010

So, according to the Hindu – my new favourite news source –  it seems as if the plan B will be some more text with more details about finance and adaptation architecture.

“Time is running out, and we still have much work ahead of us,” said Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa, who is chairing the Cancun summit. But she added, “A broad and balanced package of decisions is indeed within our grasp.” Chairs of various working groups reported a “consensus” on initiatives that would help poor countries adapt to climate change, and “convergence” on the creation of a global climate fund to channel money from wealthy to poor countries. Deals were less certain on protecting forests and improving technology cooperation.

That’s disappointing. But it kind of reflects the bear minimum expectations that people had going in, I guess.

I’ve also seem some claims – probably unreliable – that there may be some more details on an MRV compromise which come out. How momentus that is will depend very much on the level of detail.
