UNFCCC Chairperson Christiana Figueres gave a brief comment to ClimateProgress at COP17 on the negotiating position of the US at the climate conference now at its midway point in Durban, South Africa. Figueres characterized the US as “hamstrung” on its inaction on climate change, saying that awareness needs to be raised in American civil society. Climate action is more than a “historic responsibility”, Figueres said, but also a growing and real part of daily life in America that will significant impact on the health and well-being of all Americans in the coming decades.
