Still waiting outside closed doors....
Plenary has not yet resumed, many contact group meetings are also suspended. Obama and Chinese Premier Wen met bilaterally this afternoon. Obama was scheduled to stay until 5pm. German Chancellor Merkel apparently threatened to declare COP15 a failure at her press conference if no progress is made by 6pm when she leaves. Time is really running out. I haven’t heard anything new other than that nothing is agreed - except REDD. I am about to leave to catch my night train to Germany. My mind is still spinning with overall impressions and reflections. If my family lets me, I’ll blog again tomorrow.
