Climate Change on newspaper front pages around the world

December 7, 2009

COP15 officially begins today and with it,  56 newspapers in 45 countries take the unprecedented step of speaking with one voice (against Climate Change) through a common editorial running on all their papers.

Overcoming climate change will take a triumph of optimism over pessimism, of vision over short-sightedness, of what Abraham Lincoln called “the better angels of our nature”.

It is in that spirit that 56 newspapers from around the world have united behind this editorial. If we (The Guardian), with such different national and political perspectives, can agree on what must be done then surely our leaders can too.

Copenhagen climate change conference: ‘Fourteen days to seal history’s judgment on this generation

This editorial will be published tomorrow by 56 newspapers around the world in 20 languages including Chinese, Arabic and Russian. The text was drafted by a Guardian team during more than a month of consultations with editors from more than 20 of the papers involved. Like the Guardian most of the newspapers have taken the unusual step of featuring the editorial on their front page.
