Although today is the last day of the conference, a deal is anticipated tomorrow. The French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, is chairing the conference and said that that a latest version of the agreement was going to be published tomorrow morning at 8.00 am GMT which he was “sure” would be approved and also said that “We are nearly there. I’m optimistic”. President Obama's commitment is clear, from his huge efforts to change India and China. I think that he is an incredible man and President.
In its last hours, oil and fossil fuel companies have been stepping up their attempts to stop any global deal to slow down climate change. It's really important that we continue to tell people about why climate change must be stopped, how this can be done and how they should stand up and speak out.
I am hoping that a deal will be agreed tomorrow that will really fight climate change. However, until a deal is done, I will not believe it. Tomorrow I leave for Antarctica and I hope to be able to write about what I find there in terms of the effect of climate change.
