Cop20 in depth climate countdown 2

From December 8-12, Democracy Now! broadcast from the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Lima, Peru. The country is home to the largest area of Amazon rainforest after Brazil, and faces both melting glaciers in the Andes mountains and rising sea levels on its coast. Diplomats from around the world have gathered in Lima to reach a draft agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming, which will be finalized in 2015. This page features our coverage of the official meeting known as COP 20, as well as outside events and related interviews.

Democracy Now! has been on the ground to cover every U.N. Climate Change Conference since 2009 in Copenhagen, including the 2010 COP 16 in Cancún, Mexico, the 2011 COP 17 in Durban, South Africa, the 2012 COP 18 in Doha, Qatar, and the 2013 COP 19 in Warsaw, Poland. We have also reported from related meetings like the 2010 World Peoples’ Summit on Climate Change in Bolivia, and the 2012 Rio+20 Earth Summit.
