Comments Off on Crucial UN Climate Change Talks Begin in Lima, Peru

UN climate change talks begin today in Lima, Peru, with national representatives meeting to hash out a draft agreement to present at the UN’s Paris Summit in December, 2015. As you may recall, the 2009 Copenhagen Summit ended badly , with countries failing to reach a legally binding agreement for reductions in carbon emissions in a bid to curb global warming at 2°C (3.6°F) above the pre-industrial average. Recent developments, such as the breakthrough emissions reduction agreement between China and the United States , have given fresh hope for success in the current round of talks, and the next two weeks will make for interesting international politics indeed, as the committed and the recalcitrants show their hands.
