Event Details

Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 

These are tough days for international efforts to put a meaningful price on carbon pollution. The European carbon market is crashing, and countries are dumping the Kyoto Protocol like a bad habit. On the bright side for defenders of a carbon market, California's carbon market is on the upswing, and China has announced a modest carbon tax. United Nations negotiations are trying to push industrialized and emerging countries to get real about reducing global greenhouse gases and shield the world's most vulnerable populations. It's a tough sell, and many clean-energy advocates say a global deal once dreamed about at Copenhagen will never happen. Others say incremental progress is being made and the UN talks still have a meaningful (and moral) role to play in averting catastrophic climate disruption. Most scientists say we need to act, and many businesses and NGOs are leading the charge. Stakes have never been higher. Join us for a conversation with the United Nations' top negotiator fighting to protect the global commons.
