Yohe: Climate Conference A New Starting Point

In a piece posted by ABC News, Gary Yohe, the Woodhouse/Sysco Professor of Economics, is quoted in the wake of the December Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Why many in the news media were quick to characterize the conference as a “failure” the article contends that it may be decades before its affects – positive or negative – are truly known. Yohe says the conference created ‘new diplomatic territory’ and has produced an iterative process that will require frequent adjustment and more discussion from all countries involved.
