End of this openDemocracy debate

9 June 2005
openDemocracy's debate on the politics of climate change comes to end this week in the sense that no new articles will be commissioned for the climate main page - at least for now.

A short overview of the whole debate is published here.

The material in the debate continues to have life and relevance, not least in the run up to the G8 summit in July.

Thank you very much to all at openDemocracy who have worked so hard to make the debate possible. Thank you to our commissioned authors. Thank you to those who have posted in the forum. Above all, thank you to all our readers.

As the work here shows, there is much to do (targets and timetables, anyone?).
