The United Nations Climate Change Conference, also called COP21, kicked off in Paris November 30, and they don’t end until December 11.
Over the next couple weeks we’ll see history unfold, since the Paris talks could be where the world finally agrees to a legally binding, specific plan to limit carbon emissions.
Luckily, the internet has lots of ways to stay up to date with the monumental decisions that are being made at the conference, even if you can’t be there in person.
- The UN has a livestream of all the sessions, which you can play back on demand.
- UN Web TV is another 24-hour live and on-demand option if the livestream doesn’t have everything you want.
- Climate Talks Live is also keeping track of what’s trending by the hour.
