Paris Climate Talks: A Success Dressed Up Like a Failure?

COP21 will be viewed by many as humankind’s last chance to make the cuts to CO2 needed to prevent a climate catastrophe. CIGI Distinguished Fellow David Runnalls discusses emerging climate change agendas from various actors and asks if Paris can be a success despite the unwillingness of governments to face up to the reality described by the scientists. Will the global community over-promise and under-deliver? Following his remarks, David Runnalls was joined by CIGI Senior Fellow Neil Craik for Q&A.

From September to May each year, the CIGI Speaker Series are presented on important international topics to raise public awareness and understanding on a variety of current global issues. This series features some of the most prominent and acclaimed figures in their respective areas of global governance.
