RSA Event : Lifting the Lid on the Politics of Climate Change
by Tim Willmott : Be the first to leave a comment
The global response to climate change is failing. John Ashton CBE, one of the world’s leading climate diplomats, speaks candidly on what is going wrong and what is to be done.
John Ashton argues that the blockages lie not in international negotiation or the shape of a global regime, but in domestic politics across the major economies, including the UK. They can be removed, but not without wider political engagement in which government, business, the media and civil society must all play a part.
