Civil Society -supports 1o5C target at COP21

Climate Action Moreland member John Englart attended the UN climate conference in Paris, COP21, as an accredited NGO observer delegate for Climate Action Moreland as part of the Climate Action Network Australia delegation. On 18th January he gave a report back to our first monthly meeting of 2016. This article is based on his presentation at our meeting.

We went into Paris knowing there was already a substantial emissions gap /
temperature gap with national climate plans (INDCs) estimated to reduce temperature increase to 2.7C to 3.5C by 2100. This range is valid if all climate plans are implemented fully, many are conditional on finance or other support being met.

Climate Action Moreland activist to attend UN Paris Climate Talks with CANA

These are extraordinary times with enormous changes in society required to reduce emissions to mitigate climate change in the future and also adapt to the rising temperatures, sea levels and extreme weather events already occurring now and in the pipeline due to the enormous inertia in the climate system. One of our members, John Englart, will be travelling to Paris with his teenage daughter, to attend the United Nations Paris climate conference, known as the 21st Conference of the Parties or more simply as COP21.

There will be huge protests in Paris on the same weekend we march in Melbourne and in cities around the world, and a further Paris mobilization protest on December 12 immediately after the conference, no matter the result of negotiations.

We have seen too little results and many failures from 21 years of diplomatic process. Free Trade talks proceed and are often concluded with great rapidity by comparison. Free trade that primarily benefits corporate wealth has been given far more importance from our politicians than a safe climate that benefits everyone and particularly future generations.

John and Tarryn will be in Paris to document and report from the streets and civil society events.

But more than this. John Englart will join the Climate Action Network Australia (CANA) NGO official delegation to the conference to observe proceedings. He will have access to main conference plenaries and walk the same corridors as world leaders and diplomats. He will be reporting and posting to his own blog, to the nofibs website, on his own twitter account (@takvera) and will even use Climate Action Moreland’s twitter account (@camoreland) to post occasional updates, and sending updates to social communities on Google Plus and Australian and international Facebook groups he is a member of.

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
