Today I'm catching up with what's going down internationally, nationally, and locally in climate change news - at the swank Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. Don't yet know if it's an upgrade from last year, but so far what's fancier are the programs (spiral bound, 4 color) and delegate swag (eco friendly tote and water bottle, at a minimum).
I'm traditionally skeptical about these events. When I was in law school I worked at my fair share of events with large badges where people wore suits, one of them an environment and ecotrade conference in Beijing. But even if this is as much about private business opportunity as it is about public policy, it's something I've got to keep track of. More coming in the next three days.
