Blogging the UN climate talks

November 29, 2011

A group of students and at least one Brown University professor are in Durban, South Africa for a two-week United Nations meeting on climate change. One student is working directly with the chair of the Least Developed Countries delegation.

The group is led by Center for Environmental Studies professor Timmons Roberts. Brown officials say students will be posting regular dispatches from the talks at a university-sponsored website.

In the lead-up to the negotiations, Kelly Rogers discusses the whether the paltry showing by U.S. lawmakers signals a shift in U.S. policy on climate change.

Another post details a Brown Climate Development Lab study that finds developed nations have not lived up to many of their earlier pledges to help poorer countries mitigate the effects of global warming.
