But please, this time no Copenhagen! The world looks for realistic ideas.

At least, the goal for a limit until “2 Grad Celsius” is mentioned in the "Copenhagen Accord". Also the need of 100 Billion US-Dollar from 2020 onwards for developing countries is entitled, but many questions are open yet. Looking at the pledges from 2009, there has to be much more improvement- from all states.

An opinion from Kabir Taneja, a specialist in South Asian foreign affairs, energy security and defense, who is writing about the challenges of the missing balance between environment protection and industrialization.

“While the acceptance of INDCs is a much-criticized policy by Europe, it offers India security. India needs to control the fate of its developing economy, which, for example, has challenges such as providing more than 300 million people with electricity. The INDC route, probably more importantly, allows India time to build systems at home to implement a legally binding climate framework in the future, systems it currently does not have. Unless such systems are first developed, an international legally binding climate treaty could become hugely problematic for the country’s economy.”
