This week, we could turn the tide of the global recession which is threatening progress on everything we care about, including strong action on climate change. It has already plunged 100 million people into poverty and unemployment.
Right now, French President Sarkozy, the new chair of the G20 group of the world's largest economies, is deciding the group's agenda. Experts have urged the G20 to urgently halt protectionism and cuts and launch a coordinated global green jobs and stimulus plan to save millions.
