G-1 Billion closed

As the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – commonly known as the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen – came to an end, so did G-1 Billion. The articles and biographies will remain online to preserve the content that was generated and to continue to recognise the outstanding volunteers who took part in the project. I hope you continue to enjoy it!

I must admit, COP15 was a grave disappointment. I left Copenhagen mid-way in the negotiations feeling frustrated and incredibly angry with the lack of progress made with so many hitches and delays. I agree that an agreement will be difficult to make under pressure in 2 weeks by all the nation of the world, but why is it easier to send soldiers to their death at war then to save millions of lives now and in the future?
