“I don’t think there is a global appetite right now for new institutions … or a world environmental organization like we have, say, with the World Trade Organization,” said Janet Redman, co-director of the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network at the progressive Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C.
“There are a lot of places - especially the oceans and food security - where everyone is saying that doing this piecemeal is not going to address the bigger sense of these environmental issues.”
But on the whole, she said, global government probably won’t work.
“I think everyone agrees this is not the right time,” Redman told FoxNews.com.

Janet Redman speaks with Bill Resnick of KBOO about the hopes and failures of the Durban Climate Summit, and where to go from here: "One thing we were all hoping... is that okay, this is important, leaders are having to recognize that climate change is real and happening, we're going to see some shift at the international levels," said Redman. "And what happened was very dissapointing. In fact it was astonishingly disappointing."
