de Boer ResignsFebruary 18, 2010
From the Huffington Post: His departure takes effect July 1, five months before 193 nations are due to reconvene in Mexico for another attempt to reach a binding worldwide accord on controlling greenhouse gases. De Boer’s resignation adds to the uncertainty that a full treaty can be finalized there.
Uncertainty cuts both ways. Hard to say whether this improves or diminishes hopes for a binding treaty in Mexico.
