COP18 in Doha

As the Guardian observes, this morning marks the beginning of the COP18 talks in Doha. Three years after the failures at Copenhagen, it’s hard to reconcile how much time we’ve lost — but let’s hope that, through whatever mechanisms possible, we see more progress this time around than last (at the very least, more than we saw at Rio in June). It’s a small hope, but worth holding onto.
