This latest process does seem to be a game-changer:
Another protest, another climate conference - will this time be any different. Well, the marches brought more people on to the streets than ever before, thanks to the organizational power of the social media site Avaaz. And the climate talks will also be influenced by technology as it was reported this week that the sun and wind can often generate power as cheaply as gas in the home of fossil fuels, Texas.
Certainly the UN's secretary general Ban Ki Moon hopes that he can make a fresh in the endless blame-your-neighbour round of climate talks.
Next year world leaders are due to show up in Paris to settle a global climate deal based not on a bitterly-contested chiseling negotiation in the middle of the night, but on open co-operative offers of action to tackle a shared problem. Mr Ban has invited leaders to New York to make their offers public. Some small nations will doubtless make new contributions to the carbon contraction effort as they realize the vulnerability of their own economies to a hotter world.
But some big players may continue the game of climate poker, holding back their offers until they see what else is on the table. So there is no guarantee that Ban's idea will work - but at least for weary climate politics watchers, it will be a change.
