Is there still a chance that an international climate deal can be reached?

    Of course, the United Nations works dilligently to get all the worlds nations together in an effort to complete a lcimate deal, Copenhagen being the most recent example. Everytime world powers meet, environmental issues naturally are brought up. Copenahgen did not produce a binding climate deal, but many powerful nations (all the G20 nations except for Russia and Mexico) agreed to nonbinding emissions reduction goals, and this is a good start.


    Global governance deals always tkae a long time to get passed because they often require some very powerful nations to admit sovergnity to another body of global governance (such as the UN). If you have ever  heard to expression, “the slow wheels of the law” refering to judicial systems within a country, well you could probably imagine how much slower global legislation gets passed.
