The Fourteen Days of Copenhagen

The youth forest group brought some much needed Christmas cheer to the REDD negotiations.

I'll spare you the first 13 stanzas, but sing it to the tune of "12 Days of Christmas"...

On the LAST day in Denmark
the UN gave to me
Pathetic little targets
No demand side measures
Ecosystems crashing
Palm-oil a-flowing
Emissions a-leaping
No Indigenous rights
Peat lands a-draining
Endangered species
Forests converted ... [pause]
Craaaap MRV
Too much fossil fuels
Trees chain sawed
No strings attached
And a big fat logging subsidy!
