About Four Twenty Seven
Happening This Week
World leaders gathered for the G20 summit on 15-16 Nov declared they "support strong and effective action to address climate change". The official statement emphasizes the strong connection between economic growth, social welfare and climate action, setting the stage for the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties starting next week in Lima, Peru.
The G20 statement also comes on the heels of the announcement last week that the US and China reached a landmark climate change deal to cut greenhouse gases on November 12, including a $3Bn commitment from the US to the International Green Climate Fund. Whether Congress will approve such expense remains to be seen, however, as the Republican majority in Senate is already preparing to challenge the EPA's GHG regulations and pushing a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
Last but not least, the White House's focus on domestic climate preparedness continues with the expected release of new initiatives to support city and local government adaptation efforts on Monday, Nov 20.
