WWF Statement on Secretary Clinton Speech at COP15

COPENHAGEN, December 17, 2009 – World Wildlife Fund today issued the following statement today from WWF President and CEO Carter Roberts in response to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech before the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen:

“Secretary Clinton’s 100 billion dollar surprise breathes new life into the sputtering negotiations.  It bridges the needs of the developed and developing worlds and changes the game in these global talks.  All that remains is an agreement between the US and China about how they will define transparency, and a commitment by President Obama to make climate legislation his top priority for the new year.”
