By Barry Coates, Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand Memories of the Copenhagen climate summit are never far from the minds of negotiators at the climate change talks currently being held in Paris. In 2009 the Copenhagen talks collapsed in an atmosphere of political mistrust and mutual blame. It has taken six years to get negotiators back to the point of trying again to sign a global agreement. Now there is hope for a deal. Many of the conditions are favourable for a global agreement – strong... Read more

How to resolve the inherent contradictions, the cognitive dissonance, that continues to bedevil our climate negotiations, a quarter-century on? Can we achieve a workable global consensus on value, agency, and criteria? But ultimately the answer, if there is to be one, lies in new spiritual insight – a paradigmatic change in human self-perception.

Most Australians are vaguely aware of Mongolia, a vast country roughly the size of Queensland, located between two giants – Russia and China. I first noticed Mongolia as a Green when in the 1990s following the introduction of democracy, the MGP became the first Greens party in Asia. From 1996-2000 the party was in governing coalition with 3 other parties. Since that time the party fractured with another party Civil Will remaining in or close to government and the MGP struggling to gain... Read more

At COP21 this December 2015 the international community will produce a new global climate agreement. Each nation must commit to ambitious domestic emissions reduction targets to achieve the global objective of limiting global temperature increase to less than 1.5°C with the benchmark of 2°C by 2030. Sadly, New Zealand's government has chosen to set one of the world's weakest and most embarrassing climate targets, complaining that anything more than 11 percent reduction below 1990 levels by 2030...
