On this episode of Faith Talks we discuss COP27, the monumental climate summit which occurred Nov. 6-18, 2022, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. United Women in Faith's Executive for Economic and Environmental Justice Ilka Vega attended the COP27 climate negotiations and will share her insights and recommendations during the live recording of this podcast episode. Since empowering women and girls is ranked second among 76 solutions for curbing global warming (Project Drawdown), this is a timely conversation especially for an organization committed to women and children. Vega said, “I'm thankful to have met and learned from incredible women advancing climate action such as Marina Silva, environmentalist and former Ministry of the Environment of Brazil; Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland; and young activist and artist Ayisha Siddiqa from Pakistan. Their intergenerational wisdom and commitment to climate justice provides encouragement that the work we are doing through our Just Energy for All campaign is empowering more women.”

This week we're talking about climate change. The COP27 climate conference is about to begin in Egypt. But what will be the conference's own carbon emissions? And can the event deliver for Africa? Leaders from the worlds of politics, industry, activism, and academia will gather again – for COP27 – in Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt. A COP taking place in Africa underlines many of the pressing issues that delegates will face. How can justice be achieved for those countries that are least responsible for CO2 levels, but often the most damaged by climate change? And how can such a large-scale event, bringing people together from around the world, be run without in itself creating more environmental damage? This week we are joined by Dr Simon Chin-Yee, Lecturer in International Development in the UCL Department of Political Science and Professor Mark Maslin, Professor of Earth System Science in the UCL Department of Geography. Mentioned in this episode: Jonathan Barnsley, Jhénelle A Williams and Simon Chin-Yee et al. Location location location: A carbon footprint calculator for transparent travel to COP27.

Die Weltklimakonferenz in Sharm El-Sheikh ist zu Ende, über die kommenden zwei Wochen finden gleich die nächsten große Verhandlungen statt, bei denen es darum geht, die Welt, wie wir sie kennen, zu erhalten: Die COP15, also das 15. Treffen der Staaten zum Erhalt der Artenvielfalt, in Montreal. Die Erwartungen an die Konferenz sind sehr viel höher als die im Vorfeld der Klimakonferenz. Es soll eine Art Vertrag für den Artenschutz ausgehandelt werden. Das ist längst ausständig: Das letzte Mal, dass Staaten sich auf gemeinsame Schritte zum Artenschutz einigten, war 2010 auf der Biodiversitäts-COP in Japan. Dort beschlossen die Staaten, dass bis 2020 17 Prozent der Erdoberfläche unter Schutz gestellt werden sollen und der Verlust von Lebensräumen halbiert wird - daran sind die Länder krachend gescheitert. Die Welt ist heute mitten im sechsten Massensterben. In Montreal sollen Wege gefunden werden, gegenzulenken.

In this ClimateGenn episode, recorded on the last night of the extended COP in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, I am speaking with US COP veteran and legal expert, Professor Dan Bodansky from Arizona State University. [Support this channel on Patreon at https://patreon.com/genncc and also access additional content at https://genn.cc ] Dan has extensive experience working with the US negotiating team over the years and shares his insights as to what motivates negotiators and how the nature pot the COP's themselves are changing from bureaucratic conferences to mega-COP jamborees where the circus atmosphere leeches into the proceedings and influences the outcomes. However, none of this appears to be stemming the rise of global emissions to below 1.5ºC, the scientific red line that is commonly used to measure the effectiveness of climate policy. As the breakdown of trust between Global North and South countries continues to haunt the talks, a new think tank appeared at COP27 called The Overshoot Commission tasking itself with looking at navigating a climatically unstable world. With geoengineering in the form of carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation management firmly back on the table, Dan highlights that these investigations are currently about the exclusion of technologies that will not deliver, rather than the selection of technologies for deployment. The clock ticks and the world is moving into new territory on multiple fronts. Thank you for listening to this podcast. Please check the genn.cc website for the full COP27 interview and session list.

The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP27, wrapped up in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt on Sunday, and the outcome contained good news and bad news. To start, we look at the bad news: India's proposal to include a phase down of fossil fuels in the final agreement, which was backed by much of the world including the EU, UK, and US, ultimately failed to make the final agreement. This result was disappointing for many reasons, but also led to some over the top takes that global climate targets were officially doomed to fail. Ethan explains why even in spite of this bad news, there is room for optimism and hope around our climate goals and energy transition in this week's “Tip of the Iceberg.” The Sweaty Penguin is presented by Peril and Promise: a public media initiative from The WNET Group in New York, reporting on the issues and solutions around climate change.

The COP27 climate talks have been held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. It's a popular tourist destination, but the negotiators discussing ways to limit global warming and to address the harm done by climate change have not been able to relax. The talks have been pretty hard going.Recurring Energy Gang guests Melissa Lott of Columbia University, and Amy Myers-Jaffe, who has just got a new job at New York University, join host Ed Crooks to discuss the progress that has been made, and where there is still more left to do. Both Melissa and Amy have had colleagues attending the summit, and we hear what they have been working on. The gang discusses the prospect of meeting the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5˚C, the steps taken since COP26 in Glasgow a year ago, and the issue of how to compensate poorer countries for the loss and damage caused by climate change. We discuss how this is where the rubber really hits the road in climate talks: when negotiators tackle the critical questions of who pays. Many countries say they back the idea of a new facility to assist the countries that have been hit by climate-related disasters. But many also say they believe they should not have to pay themselves. The gang then transitions over to claims of another comeback for nuclear power. COP27 has had a pro-nuclear tilt, as energy security becomes a larger issue.

Durante os últimos quatro anos, a Amazônia registrou recordes de desmatamento e o Brasil se tornou o quinto maior emissor de gases de efeito estufa. Nesta quarta-feira, o “discurso contundente” do presidente-eleito Lula (PT) na 27ª Conferência do Clima atraiu os olhos de “observadores e negociadores de todo o mundo”. É o que testemunhou, diretamente de Sharm El Sheikh, no Egito, a administradora pública especialista em mudanças climáticas Natalie Unterstell. Em entrevista a Julia Duailibi, ela, que é também presidente do Instituto Talanoa, relata a expectativa dos representantes em relação à volta do país aos compromissos climáticos. “Há esperança, mas também cobrança”, diz. Na agenda política interna, Lula sinalizou a necessidade de “fortalecer alianças” com estados e municípios para avançar em direção a uma “economia descarbonizada”. Para os agentes internacionais, avalia Natalie, foram bem recebidos o compromisso de zerar o desmatamento de todos os biomas até 2030 e a “tímida” pressão sobre os países desenvolvidos para “cumprirem os acordos que podem conter a crise climática”.

Welcome to another episode of Outrage + Optimism, where we examine issues at the forefront of the climate crisis, interview change-makers, and transform our anger into productive dialogue on building a sustainable future. In this episode, co-hosts Christiana Figueres, Tom Rivett-Carnac, and Paul Dickinson share their reflections on COP27. We also have music from South Africa's Daily Maverick, featuring the brilliant vocalist, Anneli Kamfer. Tom is back from Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, where he spent several days at COP27, the UN's annual climate conference. The trio discusses whether the international commitment to contain global warming to 1.5°C一now that the target seems to be moving out of reach一is as robust as it should be. Is conference messaging, such as “[We are] resolved to pursue efforts,” as strong as it should be? Next, there's good and bad news on “Loss and Damage.” This refers to the responsibility of industrialized nations for the climate crisis and the moral case for compensating poorer countries suffering disproportionately from its consequences. Hear the breakdown and where the group stands on the progress of this critical issue. Other COP27 discussions cover balancing collective global action with internal political realities, strides in reversing deforestation, and Tom's birthday!

The 27th UN convention on climate change, known as COP27, is now underway in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. When Climate One spoke with Egyptian Ambassador Wael Aboulmagd in October, he argued that progress at this year's summit would be more rapid than in past years, because this year, the focus is on implementation rather than negotiation. And for the first time, loss and damage — what richer nations owe poorer ones for the climate impacts their emissions have caused — is on the agenda. How will these issues play out during the conference? Are countries increasing their ambition as promised, and keeping the goal of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees alive?
