Biotechnologists have a notable interest in the meeting as many scientists are working on sustainable agriculture and biofuels, for example, to help protect the planet's future. But a key issue remains: Will enough nations sign on and use the Copenhagen conference as a starting point to seriously tackle climate change and global warming on a worldwide scale? What do you think?
