Mediating where the thermostat is set
Ken has raised a very important procedural defect in Kyoto Protocol. Controlling global climate change will only be possible with support from the bottom up. Mediation in the public policy sphere is fundamentally an educational process as opposed to some "split the baby in half" process. Nations must be forced to confront the scientific facts and reliable scientific projections as opposed to hiding behind appeals to national sovereignty and blind support for BAU policies. Mediation is the process most likely to allow such confrontation of the data from atmospheric chemistry studies. IMHO, all mediators have a human obligation to promote real education and dialogue on the nature of climate change which is an issue of transcendent global significance.
