I caught up with David Gawith to get the highlights from the COP21 leaders event. Strong sentiments and emotive entreaties kicked off the negotiations. But who said what, and will words translate into actions?
Paris2015 has begun and yesterday marked the largest gathering of world leaders on one day in one place in the history of the UN.
Wait... but why? What's the big deal? The big deal is the biggest deal on climate change in the history of big climate change deals. Before packing our bags I spoke with David Tong of Fast for the Climate (fastfortheclimate.org) to get a bit of insight into the past 20 years of the UN climate negotiations, and explore why Paris2015 is the big one... but definitely not the last one.
