Pipelines, Politics and Perjury
Political leaders and corporate heads tell us they care about climate change and are acting on this global threat. But how can we tell if they are being honest? And what can we do if they are not? Mark will discuss these questions and more as he delves into the climate issues facing governments today.
How do we get effective climate policy?
Getting our politicians to implement effective climate policy is inherently difficult. In this talk, Mark Jaccard combines anecdotal and research evidence to develop strategic advice for those seeking effective climate policies. He will cover a range of relevant topics including democratic reforms, institutional design, policy design, policy evaluation, public perceptions, and climate activism.
Global Warming – Global Justice
The United Nations has attempted to achieve a global climate treaty since 1992 without success and humanity is now certain to pass a 2 C increase and most likely a 6 C increase by 2100. The latter will have catastrophic impacts for life on earth; the former may also if we are already on a runaway warming path. Why have we not achieved a global treaty? Is there any hope of achieving a global treaty? If so, how would it happen and what would it look like? What are the implications for global justice of global warming and the effort to prevent it?
