What indeed. But it’s not 2009 any longer. What have we learned?
As one of the richest countries in the world per head with the highest carbon footprint at 43t of CO2 per capita, Qatar itself is expected to lead the way.
The oil and gas rich nation has seen emissions rise by 600 per cent since 1990, largely as a result of energy-intensive air conditioning and desalination and burning off gas flares.
Between 2010 and 2011 emissions rose a further 12 per cent but Qatar has no targets for cutting emissions.
