2010年5月 Chairman 令人尊敬的代表們 女士們先生們, 接在哥本哈根(Copenhagen)之後,將會是什麼 ? 很高興能在這論壇中發聲,能夠參加這次在台灣舉辦的論壇(綠人大會)又讓我更加高興。我國政府與台灣政府素有非常密切的關係,而能夠在這裡讓我感到很欣喜,特別是因為台灣總統在前些日子有訪問吐瓦魯(Tuvalu)。 在討論「接在哥本哈根之後,將會是什麼?」之前,我想從我的觀點解釋為什麼哥本哈根會議是一個失敗的例子。首先,我對丹麥政府在哥本哈根展現的微弱野心感到相當的失望。 丹麥政府在締約國會議的前一個週末發表了一份「哥本哈根協議」草案。這份「協議」草案主要說明此會議將不會有任何結論。試想,當115位國家元首得知丹麥政府並不想要一個具體的成果,他們會怎麼認為? 我國政府在去哥本哈根前,抱持著「在締約國會議上可能會達成具有法律約束力成果」的看法。出發前六個月,我們已準備了兩份法律文案,期盼能夠藉此激盪出理智且深思熟慮的討論。第一份本案是針對京都議定書進行全面修訂的提案,使它能夠繼續達成原先的承諾;第二份文案所提供的建議是新的,且具法律約束力之政策工具,...
