Should the EU set up a Leader's Group to accelerate progress on global climate negotiations?

In the run-up to Cancun, I published a piece in the Broker, arguing that expectations were low and that the most likely outcome was agreement on some infrastructure issues. Broadly speaking, this is what happened. Cancun has kept the multilateral process alive, but a real break-through in Durban next year will require new political leadership. In my Broker article, I recommended setting up a new EUEuropean Union Leader's Group, led by Herman van Rompuy. Read the article and tell me what you think. You can vote on the question here.
