Will Tuvalu's Tactical Moves Still Save the Day?

The 1.5 hours of negotiations on LULUCF planned today didn't happen.

The Island Nation of Tuvalu insisted on discussing concerns about process and getting assurances that its views would not be ignored.

The conventional wisdom is that a decision on LULUCF rules is needed here so countries can get on to the business of setting economy-wide targets. To most, this means there must be no delay and the decision must be made quickly. But Tuvalu appears ready to take a stand that it won't be blackmailed into accepting rules with low environmental integrity. If this is what is happening, good for Tuvalu! We will utlimately all benefit.
