COP16 day two: talking tough - the US sets the tone

At Cancun, the US has reiterated its tough "all or nothing" stance, which appears to be more than just routine political posturing. With a new conservative Republican power bloc in Congress, the US can only negotiate a deal that is underpinned by reciprocated commitments, the economic implications of which will never be accepted back home. A US walkout is therefore looking like a real possibility.

COP16 ends by sidestepping binding deal and slouching toward technology transfers

While COP16 talks ended with an agreement of sorts, the modest measures fall well short of the type of action that scientists believe is necessary to stop climate change from having grave effects within mere decades.

Copenhagen will not deliver carbon price certainty for utilities

At the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, Europe's negotiating position will be to retain and develop the Kyoto Protocol and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme free market mechanism. Although the EU will seek to leverage this together with other operational and well established mechanisms to achieve its emissions reduction targets, Copenhagen will not deliver caps and floors for the carbon price.

Datamonitor on Copenhagen, the "plot to kill Kyoto" and carrots and sticks

At Copenhagen, the world will look to China and the US to overcome economic and political hurdles and set the agenda for a meaningful global climate effort. However, with China unwilling to commit to hard emissions targets and the US unlikely to overcome its zero-sum mindset suspicious of burden-sharing, Datamonitor examines a third, albeit equally contentious, 'carrots and sticks' approach.
