Global climate negotiations in Doha are nearing their conclusion and the talks are, as ever, beset by myriad divisions between rich nations and poor ones, between established economies and up-and-comers, and between, well, the United States and just about everyone else.
Among the agenda items still up in the air:-
... I asked Christoph Bals, the executive director of policy with the Bonn-based nonprofit trade and environment policy group Germanwatch, who is on the ground in Doha, whether the U.N. process had outlived its usefulness.
"The process has different weaknesses, but this is not the real problem," he said. "What is missing is the lack of political will of key players like U.S., China and partly the EU."
There's just one more day for that political will to be found.
