The UN is to hold a two-week summit (!) next month in Nairobi on climate adaptation in poor countries with ministers from 189 (!) countries. Ian Pearson, UK Climate Change Minister, says
“I would love to say that I feel confident that everyone is going to Nairobi with the expectation that there is going to be a long-term international agreement, but I do not think that is going to be the case,” Mr Pearson conceded.
“What we can realistically expect… is to hopefully agree an adaptation work programme and an adaptation fund which will be important issues for developing countries.”
Aren’t these guys worried about global warming? Think of how much hot air a large, two-week UN summit will generate.
