Climate Scoreboard Takes Flight

April 13, 2010 by Elizabeth Sawin

On the trip home from the UNFCCC meeting in Bonn, Germany I was pleasantly surprised to see a fairly accurate representation of the Climate Scoreboard in the pages of Delta’s onboard magazine, Delta Sky. With the scoreboard having received more than 700,000 views since its release just before the Copenhagen Climate Summit we already knew that the world’s people really are curious about how well policy makers and heads of state are doing at protecting the climate. Now the thousands of Delta passengers this month have a chance to see that, while they’ve made some progress, the climate negotiations have much farther to go. And who knows, it’s plausible that a few climate negotiators themselves came across the scoreboard on their way to or from Bonn.
