COP 15, December 19, 9 pm

Delegates of many nations worked through the night with Secretary General of the UN Ban Ki-moon on a climate paper. It is not official, not all could agree to it, but this is where we stand.

This is my last note from Copenhagen. I leave early in the morning, and from the weather reports it sounds like the cold and snow are now embracing the East Cost of the US. Perhaps this is true in more ways than one. A paradigm shift is needed to enter into the future. We are the ones born in this time to work on this together.

See you in New Mexico at work.

Peace and good,
Joan
