José Romero on key issues and Switzerland’s position in the climate negotiations

Dr. José Romero, the Scientific Advisor to the Swiss Federal Department of Transport, Communication, and Energy, discusses the key issues in the climate negotiations. He claims the biggest challenge is finding a balance between what developing countries and developed countries are expecting and want. He says that Switzerland has decided to go ahead with the Kyoto Protocol as well as to launch a process to negotiate a legally binding commitment treaty to go in effect over the next few years.
