Ongoing News Reports from the Cochabamba, Bolivia Climate Conference
 
Interested in following the happenings in Cochabama?  Global Justice Ecology Project is devoting our Climate Connections blog http://climatevoices.wordpress.com to multiple daily updates from participants at the Climate Conference.

About the Cochabamba Climate Conference:
 
People from around the world are attending the Peoples' Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba, Bolivia this week as a follow up to the failed UN Climate Talks in Copenhagen, Denmark last December.
 
Social movements have converged in Cochabamba to rally opposition to the push by the world's leading carbon emitters to promote unjust and false solutions to climate change such as carbon offsets, and to make a collective push for stricter binding carbon reductions, reparations for industrial-driven environmental destruction, and a human rights approach to climate policies.
 
From North America the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance http://www.ggjalliance.org -Indigenous Environmental Network http://www.ienearth.org delegation is attending with the aim of amplifying the perspectives of frontline communities resisting the impacts of climate change. Global Justice Ecology Project http://globaljusticeecology.org/ is providing a media support role for this delegation and for Indigenous Peoples and other representatives from the Global South to link reporters and media outlets in Bolivia and internationally with the voices of representatives of communities impacted by and in resistance to climate change, fossil fuels and false solutions to climate change.
 
Stay tuned to Climate Connections blog http://climatevoices.wordpress.com/ for reports from Cochabamba.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
