The First "Official" Draft of the Copenhagen Agreement: Blanks, Brackets, Chewing Gum, and Baling Wire

Richard Faulk, Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP

Abstract

The war of words – and the fight over money – continued at the Copenhagen conference on Friday. Although some parties continue to posture and insist that the negotiations are between the “haves” – “developed” nations such as the United States and Japan – and the “have nots” – “developing” nations such as China and the “G77” group – those classifications are increasingly imperiled by harsh rhetoric and unrealistic expectations.
