Climate. The southern hemisphere challenged by the greed of the north

Translated Saturday 7 November 2015, by Adrian Jordan

The intersessional meeting in Bonn, Germany, where negotiators had to reach agreement on a draft for the basis of the Paris Climate Conference (COP21), ended indecisively. For if the text does not meet its objectives, it will be in the hands of politicians.

The possibility of creating a concise draft, for negotiations on the main issues in the fight against global warming, slipped a little further away during the week of preparatory negotiation, coming to a close in Bonn, Germany. The proposed plan, ironically dubbed the “US text”, unleashed the ire of developing countries, which struggled to resubmit the issue of shared effort, the aim being for rich countries, largely responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, to contribute to the financing of the most vulnerable developing countries. This last session of COP21 talks stumbled on the issue of solidarity as opposed to competitiveness. Faced with a final text resembling a catalog of options, the heads of state will have to enter into serious debate. François Hollande will be visiting China at the start of November, seeking support for the success of the conference, but this does not get in the way of France asking Total to help construct its “solution agenda”.
