Uno beschließt Welt-Klimavertrag: Historisches Abkommen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Alle 196 Länder stimmten zu: Beim Klimagipfel in Paris haben sich die Staaten auf ein Abkommen geeinigt, das die Erderwärmung eindämmen soll. Die Beschlüsse betreffen alle Bereiche der Gesellschaft. - Weniger als zwei Grad - Schluss mit Treibhausgasen (fast); Der Höhepunkt der CO2-Emissionen soll so schnell wie möglich erreicht werden, heißt es im Vertrag. "Eine sehr weiche Formulierung, hier ist kein großer Fortschritt gelungen", sagt Reimund Schwarze vom Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung UFZ. Entwicklungsländer dürfen länger brauchen, wird im Dokument betont. Das beschlossene Ziel ist schwammiger als etwa von Deutschland gefordert. - Abgasziele sollen ständig verschärft werden - Risiken bei Erwärmung abfedern - Schäden und Verluste [ economic damage ] - Geld für die Armen - Verteilung der Verantwortung - Auskunftspflicht - Starttermin [ 2020 ] - Vertragsunterzeichnung [ April 2016 ]

Paris climate summit: UN negotiations 'need redesign' - BBC News
[ only bottom up works ... till the tide is big enough. same with health and fitness (which in part has to be about looking good/fit). self-esteem. ] The UN climate negotiations are heading for failure and need a major redesign if they are to succeed, scientists say. The pledges that individual countries are offering ahead of the Paris climate summit in December are too entrenched in self interest instead of being focussed on a common goal. The researchers say the science of cooperation is being ignored. Instead, they say the negotiations should focus on a common commitment on the global price of carbon. This means countries would agree on a uniform charge for carbon pollution, a scheme that would encourage polluters to reduce their emissions. The comments from researchers at the University of Cambridge, UK, University of Maryland, US, and University of Cologne, in Germany, are published in the journal Nature. //&!

march 2014 by asterisk2a | Jennifer Jacquet research about shame
Jennifer Jacquet research about shame;
Book available 2013

- threat of shame increases peoples compliance with group expectations and norms
- shame comes from non-compliance with norms (society, groups, cultural norms) thus shame differs
- differs to individuals perception and their own values
- Shame in online world much more readily DONE without second thoughts
- online shaming much more acceptable than offline shaming
- guilt and shame differs, the latter involves exposure. guilt is an internal norm, shame is an external norm we respond to

- probability high once people are shamed/exposed, they tend to keep going. ie shaming USA in matter of carbon emissions not helpful. OR bashing bankers for behaviour ie LIBOR rigging scandal; central bankers can not readily shame them if they were complicit behind closed doors (anti-trust style)

- Shame depends also on source, who shamed who. Bill Clinton can not shame bankers, because he has his particular history about shame himself

BBC News - Copenhagen climate summit negotiations 'suspended'
The countries that have suspended co-operation are those which make up the G77-China bloc of 130 nations. These range from wealthy countries such as South Korea, to some of the poorest states in the world.

The G77-China bloc speaks for developing countries in the climate change negotiation process.
Blocs representing poor countries vulnerable to climate change have been adamant that rich nations must commit to emission cuts beyond 2012 under the Kyoto Protocol.

But the EU and the developed world in general has promoted the idea of an entirely new agreement, replacing the protocol.

Developing countries fear they would lose many of the gains they made when the Kyoto agreement was signed in 1997.

They point out that the Kyoto Protocol is the only international legally binding instrument that has curbed carbon emissions, and also that it contains functioning mechanisms for bringing development benefits to poor countries such as money for investment in clean energy projects.
