Walking through the streets of Lima on Wednesday in that nation’s largest-ever march for climate action, I turned to a friend and said: “If you had told me when I started working on this issue in 1986 that I would still be in climate marches when I was 60 and that Canada would be ramping ...

OTTAWA – The 20th Conference of Parties (COP20) session to address the threat of climate change came to a close early Sunday morning in Lima, Peru. The two-weeks’ worth of negotiations produced a 12-month work plan for the world’s nations to prepare for the upcoming negotiations (COP21) in Paris.  The negotiations will be pivotal, as ...

(LIMA) - As you likely have heard, the COP20 talks wrapped earlier this morning at around 3:30 AM.

The COP20 talks are taking place in an unlikely venue  – a military base outside of town.  Despite the reporting of its carbon footprint, being built from scratch to accommodate ten thousand people, it is working well as a venue.  Depending on your viewpoint, it could be seen as bizarre or appropriate that the COP ...

Leona Aglukkaq has been in Lima at COP20 arriving on the same flight I took to Peru.  She was in first class so I didn’t see her, but I was reliably informed by a friend in the front cabin that she was there. It has been no easier to find her at COP20 than it ...

Sorry. That has to be my least inspired blog title ever.  Chalk it up to being immersed in UN-speak all day. The morning plenary dealt with two newly tabled documents –  a draft decision from the co-chairs of the ADP working group (Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Plan of Action) and a draft ...
