The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21 or CMP 11 will be held in Paris,[1] from November 30 to December 11.[2] It will be the 21st yearly session of the Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.[3] The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. Leadership of the negotiations is yet to be determined.

The location of UNFCCC talks are rotated by regions throughout United Nations countries. The 2015 conference will be held at Le Bourget from November 30 to December 11, 2015.[4]

The overarching goal of the Convention is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit the global temperature increase to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels.[5] However, Christiana Figueres acknowledged in the closing briefing at the 2012 Doha conference "the current pledges under the second commitment period of the Kyoto protocol are clearly not enough to guarantee that the temperature will stay below 2 °C and there is an ever increasing gap between the action of countries and what the science tells us."

During previous climate negotiations, countries agreed to outline actions they intend to take within a global agreement by March 2015. These commitments are known as Intended Nationally Determined Contributions or INDCs.[6]

Pre-industrial levels? Like pre-mid-eighteenth century haha. Get grip. I'm sure they mean pre-another industrial level......as in not during a mini-ice age, great reporting as usual.

Admittedly, it also feels good when social conservatives do it too.

Sure they would, an all expenses trip in high style footed by the taxpayer?

Even the ecotards aren't that stupid, hence the reason that they hold these conferences in very luxurious and comfortable places

They are also going to come up with an expensive plan to stop earthquakes, volcanos, hurricanes and tornadoes. All they need is to implement a few more taxes.
