Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

U.N. Climate Summit in Lima, Peru

DN! In DepthDecember 15, 2014

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.
