Anthony Cary on climate change and the recession


in Economics, Politics, The environment

Earlier today, I saw a presentation by Anthony Cary, the British High Commissioner to Canada. He was talking about why this recession has involved less of a diminished interest in environmental protection than previous ones, as well as about the upcoming climate change negotiations in Copenhagen.

Detailed notes from the presentation are on my wiki, along with notes from other presentations on climate change.

The Brits delegation in Ottawa are so obviously poseurs. They are obsessed with gossip. A friend of mine had the occasion to talk seriously with a staffer there, who instead spent the entire luncheon talking about a politician’s social life. Climate change should be their focus, not useless personal inside the beltway drivel.

Richard you have your rumours that nailed. Anthony Cary is interested in carbon and dirt and not necessarily in that order. This is why no one takes the issue seriously.
