The Ugly Truth Lurking Behind the Climate Talks

The Ugly Truth Lurking Behind the Climate Talks

Posted by on Friday, December 11, 2015

As a climate deal nears, power players want accountability (just not for themselves).

LE BOURGET, France—When I meet new people here, the first question I usually get is a variation on, “Are these your first climate talks?” What they want to know is if I’m an expert like them—if I know the jargon, the unwritten rules, the backstories of who’s been fighting who since Kyoto ’97.

The answer is, yes, these are my first talks. And that’s made for some humbling learning curves (look, “ADP” and “informal informal” aren’t exactly self-defining terms). But the good part is that I got to come here with the outsider’s perspective of someone who’s spent more time covering disaster, social upheaval, and response, particularly in Haiti, the country ranked as the third-most affected by climate change so far.

In other words, I’ve seen a few things—things that leave me with a question right at the center of what is likely to be the major battle in the final stage of these talks.

I think everyone gets the importance of money and power at these negotiations by now. The operating assumption is that rich countries who’ve benefited most from carbon emissions will pay something to alleviate the effects of global warming on the poor, while helping the new major polluters, such as India, get off carbon before they burn us past the point of no return.

Explore, Learn and Rethink Nature This Summer Vacation

Summer break looms just weeks away and many parents are wondering about vacation ideas for the kids. What better way to share time as a family than to pick activities that are not only fun, but that also reinforce the importance of an appreciation for all things that are part of our ecosystem and our national natural resources? Predictions put forth in a recent study by ecologist Mark Urban maintain that the trajectory of climate change risks the extinction of one in six plants and animal species — with some scientists being even more dire in their projections. Go Local Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, in tandem with National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis, recently announced the designation of 10 new state and local trails to the National Trails System […]

Angry Birds

Last week, Jonathan Franzen published a thoughtful personal essay in the New Yorker about the role of wildlife conservation in the era of climate change. Although it does his essay a disservice to reduce it to a bullet point, one of the central questions he raised was this: Given that some degree of climate change is now inevitable, does climate mitigation have to be the overriding priority of every wildlife organization? Or would it be OK for some organizations to focus their efforts on wildlife preservation? I italicized the words “overriding,” “every”, and “some” because they get to the heart of the way in which, although Franzen’s essay produced several balanced and informative responses, it was, for the most part, widely misunderstood. That misunderstanding got a leg up from the Audubon Society, which rolled out a sophisticated publicity attack on Franzen the day the New Yorker issue hit the stands. Since then, Audubon, taking a page from the political playbooks of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove, has been working to discredit Franzen as an authority on climate change and wildlife preservation […]

Unconsoled

Well I have to be thankful to Jonathan Franzen for one thing — he’s pushed me out of my blog blues. His essay in the New Yorker about why we can ignore climate change so misses all the basic, important points about what is going on in nature that here I am, clicking away again. I haven’t blogged since my father died in December. My father was a novelist and an ad man, and he was always the first to comment on my blogs […]
