David Turnbull on key issues in the climate negotiations

David Turnbull, Director of CAN International, discusses the key issues of the climate negotiations, namely a second commitment of the Kyoto Protocol, long term cooperative action, and climate funding. He claims there is a more masked issue of ambition and calls for delegates to match policy with science. He believes that without a second period of the Kyoto Protocol there cannot be a good overall outcome at the conference. He then discusses USA ambition and calls for more action like the Tar sands protests of Fall 2011.
