The Changing Conversation on Climate

Many Americans have long waited for the President to clarify and deepen his position on how the United States should move forward on climate change. In the years since the George W. Bush administration abandoned the Kyoto Protocol, American engagement on the issue has been uneven, and voters have been only episodically motivated by concerns about Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina or about wildfires and droughts. President Obama's last-minute intervention in the United Nations Framework Convention…

A Global Movement for Climate Justice: A Declaration and a Call to Action

The Party's Over

In the wake of an unremitting and worsening cascade of killer storms, droughts, floods, heat waves there is a growing and irreversible global understanding of the need for common action for survival and to build a sustainable future. This does not mean the masters of fossil fuel business as usual have seen the light. Their determination to wring the last dollop of fossil fuel and with it the last dollar from an afflicted…

We should come to see climate change as the national security issue it really is

It's a fact of life. Unless it's at your doorstep, it's not a priority.

I wonder if after Sandy's rage last week there's still doubt that climate change is a national security issue? The super storm was caused by the warm up of the Caribbean.

See, Sandy's punch doesn't need to feel warm in order to be a product of global warming.

It's time that policy makers came to see climate change and global warming as the national security issues they really are. This realization…

The Power of Tribalism, with Amy Chua & Walter Russell Mead

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

C2G Update: Nature-based Solutions, the UN, & the IPCC Reports, with Janos Pasztor

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions? And how should we handle climate change fatigue, individually and on a societal level?
