5-minute Lowy Lunch: Climate change

John Connor, CEO of the Climate Institute, gave the Wednesday Lowy Lunch this week. He was surprisingly upbeat about the outcome at Copenhagen, and in his interview with me afterwards, I asked him why.

I also asked if the UNFCC was still the right mechanism for reaching a global deal to reduce carbon emissions, what role China played at the talks and what was needed to rebuild trust domestically and internationally to move forward.

John Connor's full presentation can be downloaded from the Lowy Institute website.
