Green Investors Wanted: A TIME report

Found an interesting article wrapping up Copenhagen and checking out the new private investors needed to really spur any climate change action.

From the article,

“If you weren’t yet fed up with the seeming inability of governments to get anything done, December’s U.N. climate summit in Copenhagen might have pushed you over the edge. Representatives of 192 nations gathered for two weeks with the goal of hammering out an international environmental accord, and instead parliamentary stasis reigned. Late-night negotiating sessions went nowhere, powerful developing nations like China seemed determined to block any progress, and the U.S. itself — which still hasn’t passed a carbon cap of its own — lacked much diplomatic leverage. As late as the evening of Dec. 16 — just two days before the Copenhagen summit was due to close — “it looked as though we were headed to failure,” said Todd Stern, America’s top climate envoy.”

You can read the whole article here.

And while you’re over there, TIME has put together and excellent 2009 Climate-Wrap-Up special report complete with top green companies, top green website, photo essays, and much more. Check it out here.
