SOUTH AFRICA FOCUS OF WEST v EAST CLIMATE FRICTION

Posted 20 April 2010

"A week ago the world was faced with its first climate-related decision after endless discussions at some of the world's premium pleasure resorts. The World Bank approved South Africa's loan application. Its motivation was that the prosperity of the region was paramount.
I believe that the decision of the UK, USA, and some EU countries to abstain from voting in favour of South Africa's World Bank loan application was a tactical error that could have far-reaching consequences. I also believe that historians will describe this decision as climate change’s tipping point. It has passed its point of no return." Professor Will Alexander explains the implications of this West v East issue. To download pdf LINK
