Let’s stop Cancun being a COP out

From the icy cold disappointment of Copenhagen to the sunny beaches of renewed optimism in Cancun the results, or failures, of COP16 are likely to dominate the news at the end of 2010.

The run into 16th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP16) has not been as optimistic as the lead up to COP15 in Copenhagen.

However, perhaps now more than ever people are seeing the devastation wrought by climate change with floods devastating Pakistan and China, fires caused by a heat wave in Russia and other environmental issues across the World.

In order to keep you informed of what’s happening in Cancun edie.net has a One COP Shop site giving news and views from our reporters and links to sites from around the world.

Edie also has a group for people interested in COP16, which allows people to leave comments and demand action from their national leaders.

If you have any problems joining the group click here to sign up to edie or to log back in – it’s free and gives you the latest information on COP16 and all environmental news.
