Michael Zammit Cutajar, chair of the Ad-hoc Working Group on Long-Term Cooperative action, has boiled down 180 pages of climate negotiation into a pithy six-page document that sets out the key issues the Copenhagen summit must address in its final agreement. The document presents multiple options on the table for each key issue, looks at how industrialized and developing countries would address climate change, and outlines how richer countries could finance climate actions of poorer countries. The Cutajar draft establishes a global temperature ceiling of 2.7 or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels, and offers several emission reduction target options for developed countries. The war of the drafts is on, though, with the 43 small island states issuing a plan including an increased temperature target of 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, and a Danish group possibly unveiling their proposal on Saturday.
