Copenhagen 2009

photoHistorians explaining how humankind responded to the threat of climate change will refer to the Copenhagen Climate Conference of 2009 as an event where…nothing happened. Dan was there. He saw it not happen. Mostly, though, he provided visitors to several websites with context for understanding what is known about global warming and what actions might be needed to respond. For a week he spoke with many of the climate science and policy experts who went to Copenhagen to advise, to lobby and to inform. He met up with scientists who he had previously interviewed in Greenland, The Netherlands and elsewhere. Dan’s blog posts about these conversations — containing text, photos and videos — tell part of the story of who was in Copenhagen and what they said.
