COP20: Hermann Ott, Wuppertal Institute

“This process cannot deliver the cuts that are necessary to deliver cuts below 2C,”  says Hermann Ott, Senior Advisor Global Sustainability and Welfare Strategies at the Wuppertal Institute. He advocates a ‘frontrunners’ group that will move ahead with tougher mitigation and adaptation policies. “There are forces here that want to prevent progress.. that’s why we need a process that is faster. The climate talks are not disarmament talks. But they are sometimes conducted as such.”
