What impact do you think the Copenhagen conference will have on climate legislation around the world?

    The global Copenahgen summit started the ball rolling on alot of environmental legislation reforms. During the meetings, major world powers such as the U.S., the EU, and the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries all stated they recognized the need for change. In the near future we should see long term plans for cutting emmissions, as well as plans for richer countries to help finance green innitiatives in poorer countries. As with any global governance issues, real changes probably will take a significant ammount of time. However, one day we may look back on the Copenhagen summit as the turning point in the worldwide fight to stop climate change.

    Probably not, as Tip O’Neil said, all politics are local. I think it will take local initiatives to create environmental reform legislation. Here in the United States this means creating successful programs at the state level before they are implemented nationwide.
