UN climate chief hopeful 2015 talks will produce global warming accord, despite 2009 failure - The Washington Post
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Governments are more serious and the impact of climate change is more dramatic, improving chances of a groundbreaking global warming pact in 2015 in contrast with the failure of such an effort in 2009, the U.N. climate chief said Tuesday.
“Unfortunately, we have much more evidence of climate change than we did way back in 2009, and that is actually a frightening thing,” [Christiana Figueres] said. “It does prove negative effects of climate are accelerating, both in impact and frequency. Across the world, we have every single country being affected in some way.”
