Climate change takes forefront in Davos

2010-01-29 11:08

More than a month since the UN climate change talks in Denmark

ended without definitive agreement, protecting the environment is the top issue

at the World Economic Forum.

Climate change and the question of what steps world governments,

big businesses and activists can take – working together – is a key topic on

Friday at the forum’s annual meeting. Mexican President Felipe Calderon is

laying out his ideas along with Renault-Nissan head Carlos Ghosn and Yvo de

Boer, head of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

A key part of the debate is how, exactly, progress can be made that

is not just environmentally effective but also won’t break the bank.
