    Nov 24 – Copenhagen Or Bust? A Panel Discussion

    **Fully subscribed. All those registered have received acknowlegdements. Waiting list on the gate for those willing to wait for a spare place. Camerapeople should get there in good time to set up, as space is limited.**

    U.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders have agreed that they have run out of time to forge a treaty on greenhouse gas reductions at next month’s global warming summit in Copenhagen. The summit’s chairman, Danish Prime Minister Lars Rasmussen, is now pushing instead for a “politically binding” agreement.

    Is Copenhagen a bust? Where does the world—and China—go from here? What CO2 emissions targets are reasonable and acceptable to the Chinese government? How might climate change affect China and what kinds of impacts could be expected if nations fail to seriously rein in carbon emissions? A panel of experts will address these and other questions. The panel is being finalized and details will be confirmed later.

    1. Wu Changhua, director, Climate Group Greater China
    2. Hu Angang, Tsinghua University economist and leader of a climate policy thinktank
    3. Leszek Sobkowiak, water expert and visiting scholar at Chinese Academy of Sciences
    4. US embassy – to be confirmed
