The 'endorsements-page' is split-up by category into separate pages. This reports both the
volume and the diversity of attention C&C now receives. This is evidence supporting claims that
C&C is now the most widely cited & arguably the most widely & diversely supported model
in the UN negotiations on climate change & the debates these have given rise to.

Pages are arranged with [& can be visited at] the category headings below.
There is some overlapping and these headings will become more diverse.

According to Chris Rose, ex Campaigns Director for Greenpeace,
10 factors have made it hard to campaign effectively ‘on climate’.

  1. Scientists defined the issue;
  2. Governments ran off with it;
  3. NGOs adopted secondary roles;
  4. The issue had no public;
  5. The media were left to define the issue in visual terms;
  6. Governments soft pedalled on the issue;
  7. Scientists led calls for education of the public;
  8. Many NGOs tried to make the UNFCCC ‘work’;
  9. Others tried to connect it with “bigger issues”;
  10. There was no common proposition.

He writes,

"only Aubrey Meyer father of ‘contraction and convergence’,
managed to penetrate this remote citadel. NGOs could prioritise
climate change but were always stuck in someone else’s game."

Why Campaigning on Climate is Difficult: Chris Rose

NGOs were 'stuck in someone else's game'? Chris could be right about that & it is
noteworthy it is him saying that. However, the comment about C&C really says this: -

Once the need for UNFCCC-compliance is seen everything becomes clear.
is obviously a 'shot-gun wedding' where 'climate-change' is the father
with a loaded gun and a stop-watch. So C&C is obviously the only
resolution, or 'common wedded-position'.
