Abstract
Despite the malaise that seemed to overlay the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference before opening day, the summit opened with a flourish of rhetoric and apparent optimism by a host of attendees. In a statement titled “Governments set to seal ambitious international climate change deal in Copenhagen,” UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer, the UN’s top climate change official, practically overflowed with enthusiasm, sounding supremely confident that an international climate change deal was within reach.
