This week’s poll: COP21

COP21 is seeking binding agreements to limit global warming to no more than 2 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels by the end of the century. Which of these statements is closest to your feelings?

  • The energy sector accounts for two-thirds of all global emissions and it is imperative that nations shift permanently toward renewables and other forms of low-carbon energy generation
  • COP21’s technology focus should be on adaptation, as we are already locked into a potentially dangerous climate shift
  • COP21 will be a diplomatic talking shop and any agreements will amount to little more than environmental window dressing
  • COP21 would have considerably more credibility if it were done entirely via videoconferencing
  • None of the above
