Big Conference on Warming Ends, Achieving Modest Results
The yearly United Nations conference on climate change ended Friday with only modest results after delegates failed to establish a timetable for future cuts on pollution linked to global warming.
Despite nearly two weeks of meetings, which drew 6,000 participants to Nairobi from around the world, the delegates could not agree on a number of issues, especially how to move beyond the Kyoto Protocol, which requires cuts in emissions by most industrialized countries but expires in 2012.

Talks unlikely to produce push for a new Kyoto
YVO de Boer was, naturally, diplomatic.

UN talks seek extended Kyoto "as soon as possible"
A U.N. climate change conference has reaffirmed a goal of agreeing an extension of the Kyoto Protocol on curbing global warming "as soon as possible" beyond 2012 but without setting a deadline. A committee of delegates from 165 nations said it would end its work "as early as possible and in time to ensure that there is no gap" between the end of Kyooto's first period lasting until 2012 and new limits for industrialized nations from 2013.

Technology in a Post-2012 Transatlantic Perspective
© CEPS, November 2005 (by Christian Egenhofer)
The EU and the US have found themselves supporting two polar views on which strategy is the most effective in achieving stabilisation of greenhouse (GHG) emissions: ‘market pull’ vs ‘technology push’. As an advocate of the latter, the US asserts that the principal emphasis should be on technology development, financed through typical public R&D programmes. In supporting the ‘market-pull’ approach, the EU argues that technological change is an incremental process emanating primarily from business and industry, induced by government incentives. This paper argues that these two opposing positions can be explained by the respective political economies in the EU and the US but that changes are afoot that can improve the prospects for cooperation. In order to foster the convergence of views, additional conditions need to be fulfilled in both the EU and the US.
