The next round of top-level climate change negotiations is currently underway in Cancun, Mexico. Nigel Purvis, writing for the German Marshall Fund, has an interesting take on why these top-level talks may not be the be all and end all for achieving progress:

Global climate talks have begun to resemble a bad soap opera — they seem to never end, yet never really change and at times bear little resemblance to reality. This is why climate diplomacy as we know it is losing its relevance.

Instead, Purvis suggests:

We need to place less emphasis on international promises and more on domestic action, less on burden sharing and more on smart development policies.

Interesting read.
