Towards a More Balanced View of the World ?

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Summit, which was held in Denmark from 7th-19th December 2009 … should be a very loud wake-up call for Europeans.  When the ‘real’ political action was taking place towards the end of the Summit … the European Union was out to lunch … nowhere to be seen … irrelevant to global events !!

The Fracture of the 2007 UNFCCC Bali Consensus at the 2009 Copenhagen Summit … the sharp division between the ‘have’s’ and the ‘have-not’s’ of our small planet … signals one more stage in the development of a process which, I believe, began back in September 2003 … when the World Trade Talks collapsed in Cancun, Mexico.  At least, that’s when I noticed that the world’s political map was beginning to change dramatically.  Geo-political adaptation ?

Anyway … I certainly was not happy with the Balance of the media reporting from Copenhagen.  So, I have added Links which will bring news and views directly from other locations …

–   Brazil, China, India, Russia, Venezuela, Turkey & Cuba ;

–   The Arab World ;

–   The ALBA Group of Countries in South America.
