Fossil of the year

Recommended Posts

3rd place - Russia Russia stormed into third place for today's Fossil of the Day due to its delegation head's final statement that the 25-40% targets for 2020 are "unfounded". Perhaps Russia thinks that there are more eminent, more well-informed organisations out there than the Nobel-Prizewinning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change?

2nd Place - The European Union

With its Climate and Energy Package shivering in the damp and chilly - but not frosty and frozen thanks to climate change - Polish winter, the European Union has snatched second place for stressing that Europe supports a 2 degree increase in average global temperatures. Of course, the Brussels agreement charts a 4 degree increase, but hey, if you listen to Italy's Berlusconi the degrees don't matter anyway as climate action is as urgent as a haircut.

And first place.... drum roll...

The Umbrella Group! Japan, Russia, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

While being full of the usual suspects - and several repeat FOTD winners - this win is particularly apt due to the group's insistence that they have not been obstructing progress because.... they (grudgingly) re-affirmed their Bali targets. Bravo!

Now for the long awaited Fossil of the Year...

Canada has racked up enough points over the last 2 weeks to land itself in the first place for the country that has done the most to undermine and hinder the progress of the talks here in Poznan.
