Copenhagen's morning reads

By Juliet Eilperin
Here's a mix of opinion pieces and scientific reports from Tuesday morning, to guide readers through the ongoing climate negotiations:

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton writes in the International Herald Tribune that there's a "way forward" on getting a global warming pact, and the rest of the world should join the U.S. in pursuing it.

Harvard University environmental economist Robert Stavins is blogging about how despite all the focus on how much rich countries will give poor countries to cope with climate change, it's the private sector that will drive financing in the developing world.

And in case you want to read some of the scientific reports which have just been released in the context of Copenhagen, the one on the cryosphere commissioned by the Norwegian government and former vice president Al Gore is here, the one by the International Union for Conservation of Nature is here, and the one by the Wildlife Conservation Society is here.

Also, some catch-up from over the weekend. While covering the protests, I ran into Todd M. Johnson, a Silver Spring, Md., resident and Post reader, who took a bunch of photos documenting the thousands of people. You can see his photos here.
