Why are climate negotiations taking so long in Thailand?

    Yvo de Boer, head of the U.N. Climate Change Secretariat, has mentioned deadlocks and lack of cooperation when discussing “painfully slow” negotiations in Thailand’s climate talks. Much debate has been about wealthy nations’ goals for emissions reductions and developing countries’ funding deficits. Countries like the U.S. must have “a higher level of ambition,” de Boer has said.

    To be more specific, it’s about finding a reason to compromise their own economic growth. A cap on carbon output should decrease their overall GDP, and as they are still very much a developing country that’s a particularly dangerous prospect to them. Unless larger nations provide an incentive, they probably won’t pass a resolution.
