There is an informal meeting starting tomorrow in Åre/Sweden between EU environmental ministers :
According to current presidency of EU they see a great potential for success in reaching a climate change agreement whereby expecting more companies to be willing to invest in climate-friendly products producing more jobs etc. Apparently this informal meeting will be a sort of preparation and review session for upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in December where a commitment of 10 Billion dollars from rich countries is expected to be on table;
In my opinion, given the current economic context, the end result will either be 1/10th of this expected amount or maybe an extended period of cash injections, i.e. not as effective as one would hope.
