UN Prepares for Global Warming Talks in Bali

More Promises, No Action Are Likely Outcomes

Washington, D.C., November 28, 2007—Diplomats from dozens of countries are preparing this week for global warming negotiations in Bali, Indonesia, where delegates will discuss plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions after the current terms of the Kyoto Protocol expire in 2012. While international officials have made grand predictions of what they hope to accomplish in Bali, the likelihood of a meaningful emissions reduction agreement is small.

 

“With many European countries failing to meet their Kyoto targets and major developing world emitters like China and India refusing to make any concessions, it has become clear that the United Nations’ global warming strategy has failed,” said Competitive Enterprise Institute Director of Energy & Global Warming Policy Myron Ebell. “Another round of promises to reduce emissions may make the delegates feel good, but the Kyoto Protocol has demonstrated that meaningless symbolism can be very expensive.”
