COP15 Highlights, day 9 - December 15, 2009

The Governator graces the Copenhagen Conference. Come a long way since his days of driving multiple Humvees. There's a shot of Premier Gordon Campbell at the 4:00 min mark, in the audience during Ahnold's speech. Seems to be blackberrying, like a good Canadian.

The Obama watch:
Mr. Obama has been talking with a number of foreign officials in advance of his arrival here on Friday, the last scheduled day of the conference. He has spoken with the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Ethiopia and Bangladesh since Monday, hoping to find a way to bridge the differences between the developed and developing countries that have divided this effort for years.
They seem to be looking at July as a date for a new treaty, but a deal on protecting forests seems to be the big news that is being applauded.
