Pope Francis Talks Climate Change in Speech at UN

A global perception of his moral authority may contribute momentum to a meaningful deal at
December's climate talks in Paris.
While there appears to be a new sense of urgency in advance of the 21st Session of the Conference of
the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11) scheduled
to open on November 30th in Paris, the fact remains that this year's negotiations follow 20 years
of largely failed efforts. “COP21 will be a crucial conference, as it needs to achieve a new
international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global
warming below 2°C,” the organizers state. It remains to be seen if world leaders will finally act
responsibly to address the issue in meaningful ways.
