    L'organisme Équiterre tenait récemment une conférence sur l'un des parents pauvres des négociations au Sommet de l'ONU sur les changements climatiques : le secteur des transports. « Même s'il est vrai que ce secteur ne compte que pour 13,5 % des émissions globales, il existe une réalité sous-jacente à ce phénomène qui est encore trop peu discutée ici. Plus les sociétés se tournent vers l'industrialisation, plus la part des transports dans le bilan des pays augmente. » - Steven Guilbeault, Équiterre.

      For more coverage of COP17, go to http://mediacoop.ca/durban On Dec. 8, with just a day and a half left to negotiations at COP17 in Durban, climate justice activists from around the world spoke out about the failings of the conference and the inability of government's to put aside national interest, and economic interests, in order to reach a strong, binding and effective agreement. In particular, they took aim at the 'Green Economy,' which focuses predominantly on market mechanisms and profit motives in order to address climate change. Tools like carbon offsets and the carbon market have yet to show that they can effectively curb green house gas emissions, and with it global warming and catastrophic climate change. In fact, internal studies of the World Bank, which is the interim trustee of the Green Climate Fund, has shown that more that half of the projects undertaken in Africa so-far have been counter-productive. Speakers called on governments to disregard profit motives and, taking on the terms of the Occupy movement, to distance themselves from the 1% in favor of funding actual solutions. Speakers include: Anne Petermann, Moderator, Executive Director, Global Justice Ecology Project Desmond D’sa, South Durban Community Environmental Alliance Kandi Mosset, Indigenous Environmental Network and GGJA Ricardo Navarro, Friends of the Earth El Salvador Credits: Camera and editing: Maude Prud'homme Audio recording and editing: Tim McSorley

                • Rich Polluters — Including U.S. — Should Face Sanctions for Rejecting Binding Emissions Cuts

                  www.DemocracyNow.org - Talks at the United Nations Climate Change Conference are in their second to last day, but little progress appears to have been made on the key issues of extending the Kyoto Protocol or forming a Green Climate Fund. The United States is refusing to accept any deal involving binding emissions cuts before the year 2020 despite dire warnings that the world can't afford to wait. Democracy Now! gets analysis from Pablo Solon, Bolivia's former ambassador to the United Nations and former chief negotiator on climate change, and from Patrick Bond, a South African climate activist, professor and author. "The main issue is the figure of emission reductions of rich countries is not really being raised," Solon says. "It is very, very low... You cannot be silent when you see the genocide and ecocide that is going to happen because of this kind of decision." Solon also says the U.S. "blackmails" developing countries into dropping demands for binding cuts by threatening to withdraw climate aid. Bond says the next round of climate talks should include the idea of sanctions against major polluters, like the United States, that reject binding cuts.

                    DemocracyNow.org - Several prominent U.S. environmental groups have accused the Obama administration of obstructing negotiations at the United Nations Climate Change Conference and have called for the United States to step aside and let other countries carry on with the talks. Earlier today, the top U.S. climate negotiator Todd Stern addressed the U.N. summit for the first time. But as he took the stage, Middlebury College student Abigail Borah interrupted the proceedings. "I am scared for my future," Borah told Stern. "2020 is too late to wait. We need an urgent path to a fair, ambitious, and legally binding treaty. You must take responsibility to act now." Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman later questioned Stern about Borah's comments and accusations the United States is a major obstacle to progress at the climate talks.
