Hillary Clinton will head to Copenhagen
By Steven Mufson in our blog, Post Carbon:
Just in case there weren't enough policy star power in Copenhagen, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to attend the climate conference, according to sources with non-governmental organizations at the conference.
Clinton plans to travel on Wednesday and take part in negotiations on Thursday, a day before President Obama is due to arrive. She has booked a full day of meetings on Thursday and will join Obama once he arrives.
Why the Secretary of State? The top U.S. negotiator at the conference, Todd Stern, hangs his hat at the State Department. And the U.S. position on climate change has been a central issue in relations with other nations, especially in Europe, which has been pressing for an accord.
