«People keep on asking me if I am optimistic...». It is Connie Hedegaard speaking, the Commissioner for Climate Action. During the interview she underlines the outcomes of Cancún and the challenges that world climate is still facing due to slow UN processes and many obstacles to be overcome. Moreover, even those who do not believe in climate change must realize that our economy is not sustainable any longer. To preserve the comforts given for granted in Europe, we have to create a low-carbon economy. There is a long journey ahead, but politics is the «art of possible»: it can create a different future step by step. Next step at the UN conference in Durban.
