Abstract: At the end of the climate summit in Copenhagen that took place at the beginning of December last year, the "Copenhagen Accord" was passed, since the delegates were not able to agree on a nationally binding treaty. The Accord stipulates that the countries submit their climate goals for 2020 to the UN Climate Secretariat by 31 January 2010. Now that his deadline has passed, we see that very inhomogeneous climate goals have been announced, that major emitters have not named any absolute reduction goals and that the reduction goals of many countries are only very moderate. Against this background the Copenhagen Accord cannot be regarded as a particular success.
