negotiations for a post-Kyoto agreement have been taking place since
2007. A final treaty is expected to be adopted in Copenhagen in
December 2009. What improvements will be proposed to the Kyoto
Protocol? What will be the major obstacles to an agreement? What
lessons have been learned from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM),
Joint Implementation JI), the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and
other trading schemes, such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative
(RGGI) and the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX)? What is the future of
the growing multi-billion dollar annual emissions trading market? This
panel will provide insight into the major provisions of the
international post-Kyoto climate change agreement, how the major
obstacles to agreement may be overcome, and the future of emissions
trading markets.

    I thought it was great! Very interesting, all of the panelists brought a different opinion to the table and were able to eloquently defend it. I am excited for the upcoming panel on Smart Grid next month!

    Panelists were very well informed
    The place was organized
    They covered most of the environmental questions and they had the multiple views on the issues and the panelists disclose the plans to discuss and the goals of Copenhagen Global meet and what possibilities could be discussed there

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
