A REPORT FROM COP27: IS THERE ANY PROGRESS?
COP 27: How much is public relations and how much is progress toward actually doing something about the climate crisis? The 27th United Nations “Conference of the Parties” on climate change is ending, and we wanted to know if there were any important agreements. After a long fight, “loss and damage” is on the agenda—but is there meaningful progress?
We have Ben Goloff from the Center for Biological Diversity reporting from Sharm-El-Sheik, Egypt and and Doris Marlin from the UU Ministry for Earth, who has attended 4 previous Conferences, about what has happened this week at COP27.
Friday, Nov. 18, is the last day scheduled for COP27, though typically it may go into Saturday before the negotiations and the agreements can be memorialized in the Final Report of the Conference of Parties for COP 27.
Join us next week, Friday, November 25th, at 2:30 p.m., when Reverend Billy and Savitri of the Church of Stop Shopping joins us for Buy Nothing Day!
