Product description

This is an indispensable read for anyone who seeks to understand world leaders' responses to climate change through the United Nations' Conference of the Parties (COP).Patrick Bond provides vital background and theoretical context to what happened at the COPS of Kyoto, Copenhagen, Cancun and Durban. He explores the favoured strategies of key elites from the crisis-ridden global and national power blocs, including South Africa, and finds them incapable of reconciling the threat to the planet with their economies' addiction to fossil fuels. Finally, the book reveals sites of climate justice and interrogates the new movement's approach.
