Climate Crisis? What Climate Crisis?
From the very first sentence to the very last this very “educational” publication is collecting very usefull information. Aleks
(At Least) Five Decades of Knowing and (Not) Acting
By Steffen Böhm and Sian Sullivan
In all the talk about the Paris Agreement, reached at the twenty-ﬁrst Conference of Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris in 2015, it is sometimes forgotten that the world’s political leaders have held negotiations about climate change at the highest possible level for at least three decades. Many have known about climate change for a lot longer.
Despite more than thirty years of high-level, global talks on climate
change, we are still seeing emissions rising dramatically around the
world. Whatever we have done on this planet in terms of climate
mitigation over the past thirty plus years has not worked. Given that
most climate scientists believe we are soon running out of time, the
authors contributing to this volume ask what has gone wrong and what
now needs to be done. We hope the essays collated here will help us
move more radically and urgently in the direction needed.
