Cop15, Cop16 – and no ambitions left

There was Hopenhagen.

And then, there was Flopenhagen.

We took a snapshot 9 months after Cop15, the United Nations huge climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark December 2009.

And again, we took a snapshot 14 months after Copenhagen, shortly after the much less hyped Cop16 in Cancun, Mexico.

Politicians and the media seemed to lower their ambitions after the failed ambitions at Cop15 in Copenhagen; they admitted that, when asked in the Fall of 2010.

And indeed, they did; nothing really happened at Cop16, compared to the events leading up to and during Cop15. Here is what media people answered when we asked them shortly after the Cop16; we did so in February 2011, being 14 months after Cop15 and just 2 months after Cop16.
