More than 10,000 people are converging in Poznan, Poland, this week for the United Nation's conference on climate change. This global conference is the second in a trilogy of negotiations, whose goal is to create international policy that will decrease the effects of climate change and set the planet on a path toward a low carbon future. The final conference, COP15, will take place next fall in Copenhagen.
Public-interest law firm Earthjustice has sent two of its most global warming-savvy attorneys to Poznan this week to witness and write about their experiences while there. Through their Postcards from Poznan series, attorneys Martin Wagner and Erika Rosenthal will be giving us an educated glimpse at the busy world of climate policy negotiators.
Their most recent letter, the Stakes are High at Climate Summit, discusses the importance of global participation in this treaty.
Wagner is Managing Attorney for the International Program of Earthjustice, and blogged from Bali at the last world climate change conference. Rosenthal is a staff attorney in the International Program, and has an international background in environment and public health matters, according to Earthjustice.

Earthjustice is definitely one of the more reputable environmental organizations out there. I look forward to their thoughts on the Climate Summit - especially now in anticipation of an Obama administration that has pledged to take a serious stance on America's role in combating climate change.
