COP 15 -Tck Tck Tck hoodwinked NGOs

PEJ News - Joan Russow - www.Climatechangecopenhagen.org - COP 15 -Tck Tck Tck hoodwinked NGOs: 
 bold demands sacrificed for PR coverage

Did the many NGO groups that signed on to Tck Tck Tck Campaign know what they were agreeing to? Were they aware of the corporate links to the Campaign? Do they know who owns the Trade Mark Tck Tck Tck that they have been so dutifully promoting? Or do the NGOs care?


In many ways the Tck, tck tck campaign undermined what the developing countries were demanding.

In the Tck Tck Tck Campaign for COP 15, they were calling for developed states to “Reduce developed country emissions by at least 40% by 2020”. Way below what developing states were calling for.

And do the groups know that TCk TCk Tck has corporate "partners" such as nuclear energy promoters: EDF and GDF Suez.



. A campaign with a percentage reduction without a base-line date. In the Tck Tck Tck campaign demands it was stated: "Reduce developed country emissions by at least 40% by 2020" . Is that from 2009 levels? or Canadian 2006 levels, or US 2005 levels but not from what most of developing states wanted at least 45% from 1990 levels. Apart for calling for stabilization by 2015, there was no commitment proposed for subsequent years, such as [collectively reduce global emission by at least //[50] [85] 95 % from 1990 levels by 2050 (Chair’s December 11 draft) ]. The developing states were asking for Developed states to reduce emissions by at least 95% below 1990 levels by 2050; Tck Tck Tck campaing was silent on 2050 commitment. Key issues at COP 15 were the need for a common baseline such as 1990, and for developed states to commit to high percentage reduction of greenhouse gases from the 1990 baseline.


The Public Relations Campaign boasted at the 2009 ANA (Advertising) Annual Conference-The Masters of Marketing, David Jones, global chief executive officer, Havas Worldwide, spoke about a particularly important advertising program his agency recently created for the Tck Tck Tck: Time for Climate Justice campaign. ((the 2009 ANA Masters of Marketing Conference)

David Jones is global CEO of Havas Worldwide, running Euro RSCG Worldwide, Arnold Worldwide and all creative, marketing services and design companies throughout the global Havas network of 12,000 people and more than 250 offices. He is also the Director General of Havas.
