globalwarmingtweet2The election of Donald J. Trump cast a long shadow over recent negotiations at the Marrakech Climate Change Conference (COP22).

Before the third blog post of the series “Global Challenges of Climate Change”, our guest contributor, William Hull, assesses the new climate realities of a Trump presidency, the potential consequences for the Paris Agreement, and the on-going climate actions of U.S. corporations and citizens.

William also considers, in this blog post, the opportunities left for China, the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and lingering questions concerning the future role of the U.S. in climate diplomacy. The blog post, entitled ‘Trump: A New Climate of Doubt’, is available here.

New Blog Post: Climate Finance – Shifting for a Fix

23625949416_54e933fdff_kIn the second blog post of the series “Global Politics of Climate Change“, our guest contributor, William Hull, sheds light on the most recent developments in climate finance. This is one of the trickier points in climate negotiations, which has historically represented a challenge in cooperation between developed and developing countries.

William explains, in this blog post, how this issue was tackled during the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21) while looking at the next steps in the build-up to the Marrakesh Climate Change Conference (COP22) later this year. The blog post, entitled ‘Climate Finance: Shifting for a Fix’, is available here.

The next blog post in the series will focus on climate action and sustainable development.
