If you are looking for an honest account of the UNFCCC process, Prof. Kevin Anderson is a great person to turn to. (Follow him on Twitter here: @KevinClimate
This part diary entry, part stream of conscience blog entry from Nov 2017, written on a train somewhere between Germany and Sweden, is particularly enlightening. He reflects on NETs (Negative Emissions Technologies), the ‘us and them’ of a COP and searches for some hope amongst the chaos! It’s a good read, it might leave you wanting to redesign the UNFCCC COP circus completely.
Prof. Anderson is in the U.K. next week for a talk at UCL. It is sold out, but we are hoping to sneak in and report back.
