Wayne Law is honored to host Elliot Diringer, Executive Vice President for the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions in Washington, D.C. He will be sharing insights on the upcoming negotiations on a new global climate change agreement. In December, world leaders will gather in Paris to negotiate an agreement to limit greenhouse gas pollution. Mr. Diringer offers an optimistic behind the scenes look at the Paris talks, previewing the policy issues and global politics involved. He concludes:
It’s easy to understand, given the disappointing history of the U.N. climate talks, the deep cynicism in many quarters that the process can ever produce meaningful results. But this well-earned cynicism shouldn’t blind us to the genuine opportunity in Paris to establish a more balanced, durable and effective global framework.
His public talk is this Tuesday, October 13 at 12:15 p.m. in Wayne Law’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium. Thanks to Wayne Law's Program for International Legal Studies and International Law Students Association, the event is free and lunch will be provided.
