A conversation with Denmark's Ambassador to the U.S.


Denmark is to host the United Nations Climate Conference in 2009 when the successor to the Kyoto protocol is to be agreed upon. At least 10,000 participants from around the world will be attending, which will be the most significant gathering since the Kyoto meeting in 1997. Denmark is also among the leading nations in the use of renewable energy and has already reduced CO2-emissions by 15 percent. Denmark's Ambassador to the U.S., Friis Arne Petersen, will discuss expectations for the UN Climate Conference, share how Denmark has implemented its climate and energy policy, and answer questions from the audience.
