Climate change photographer and CEC member Gary Braasch reports on his exhibit at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington DC and experience as a blogger at the Copenhangen conference.
Reporting on the Copenhagen climate change conference
At Copenhagen, I increased the breadth of coverage of climate and energy that I provide through World View of Global Warming. I attended numerous briefings and press conferences, talked with delegates and observers, photographed the delegates, the victims, the scientists, the media and the protestors. I watched until the end when the COP "took note of" the Copenhagen Accord... but took no binding action on emission reductions.
This new Accord is an unprecedented positive statement by the major climate polluters. But it appears to be underpowered and have many possible brakes ... how it will drive the next year's negotiations is just one of many unanswered questions and unfinished tasks of COP-15.
My blog of impressions and reportage on the Copenhagen Accord and the largest world climate meeting ever are on line at http://www.worldviewofglobalwarming.org
