US predicts Paris climate talks will benefit from lessons of past mistakes

US predicts Paris climate talks will benefit from lessons of past mistakes | Competitive Edge |

White House officials say Obama is determined to take lead on climate change during talks set to begin on Monday with bilateral meeting with China.

Lessons from past failures will help push nations towards a robust climate change agreement that will push down greenhouse gas emissions, the White House has predicted.

The US has promised to take a leadership role during next week’s talks in Paris, with Barack Obama arriving on Sunday night for a number of high-level meetings designed to spur early momentum.

The UN talks start on Monday and will run until 11 December, with 138 heads of state expected to attend.

Obama will hold a bilateral meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping on Monday morning that will send a “strong message to the world of their shared commitment to combat climate change and see a strong agreement reached”, according to Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications at the White House.

“The stars are more aligned to reach agreement than I have ever seen before,” said Todd Stern, the US chief negotiator. “There is no comparison between Paris and Copenhagen in 2009. We have this opportunity, this moment. Countries are going to have to be willing to depart from some of their fixed positions to seek common good. We can get this done. We will get this done.”

The Sharing Economy Comes Of Age

The Sharing Economy Comes Of Age | Competitive Edge |

Talk about the new consumer values: transparency participation and collaboration. The LeWeb conference in London, which began with a theme of the "Collaborative Economy," should be a wake-up call to corporations, brands, and everyone in the advertising ecosystem. Your lives are about to change. The market has once again spoken, and if you think you've already been disrupted by social media, think again. You ain't seen nothing yet.

Loic Le Meur, LeWeb's cofounder, opened this year's event with a startling presentation on the Collaborative Economy, a new movement in which consumers, especially the highly coveted and targeted Millennials, have decided to share and rent rather than own things in a dramatic reversal of 50-year trends.

Compartir, intercambiar, prestar, regalar... una nueva forma de entender la economía está viendo la luz: la economía colaborativa. Más lógica, más sostenible, cambiará la forma en que producimos, valoramos y usamos los objetos.
