WHAT INSIDERS ARE SAYING
WHAT DID LIMA ACHIEVE? The United Nations climate talks in Lima may have produced a rough road map for countries to outline carbon cuts, but leave several questions up in the air heading into the make-or-break negotiations in Paris. Were the talks a success, a failure, or somewhere in between? Read the full responses and weigh in here.
“The negotiations are in a different place than they were in Copenhagen. Countries that have in the past vigorously opposed to climate action like Australia are softening their stances, and each country is now determining its own best way to contribute to the agreement.” —Michael Shank, director of media strategies, Climate Nexus.
