Thursday Blogger briefing

Second, we’re proud to announce that TckTckTck (the Global Campaign for Climate Action) is bringing back the Fresh Air Center, a virtual new media resource center that launched last year in Copenhagen to provide support for bloggers (and other journalists) tracking the negotiations.  To kick things off, the Fresh Air Center has pulled experts from the TckTckTck campaign for a blogger briefing this coming Thursday.

Join some of our favorite professional negotiator trackers – Alden Meyer (Union of Concerned Scientists), Antonio Hill (Oxfam International), Cindy Baxter (Greenpeace International) and David Turnbull (CAN International) this coming Thursday, May 27th at 15:00 GMT (11a EDT).

Introducing the new UNFCCC Executive Secretary – Christina Figueres

Clean Skies News sat down with Christina Figueres on May 18 for a video interview shortly after her nomination by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. While the interview doesn’t go into much depth, it’s a great a introduction to the new Executive Secretary.  Figueres was the preferred candidate for many developing countries and is highly regarded by the man she’ll replace.
