Linking trust, ambition and integrity in Paris climate talks

By Barry Coates, Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand

The first deadline for climate change negotiations in Paris is fast approaching. The government officials who have been negotiating for eight long years since negotiations started in Bali in 2007 have to finish their work by Saturday. Late night sessions have already started trying to come up with a draft agreement that is ready for Ministers to take the final political decisions.

Too much hot air, not enough trust – Day one from the Climate summit

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.

Resolving our Cognitive Dissonance - Kennedy Graham COP21 blog 2

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. The initiatives taken in recent years by religious leaders of all faiths are becoming the beacon. If they are emulated by the faithful, and beyond to civil society, to the market and to political leadership, it may reduce the cognitive dissonance we still encounter in this epic struggle, spawning a genuine consensus over how to live on planet Earth. If this were to occur, we might gain a new understanding on what is of intrinsic worth, who is empowered to take legitimate decisions on all our behalf, and what criteria we adopt for determining policy.

Kennedy Graham MP, Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand

The national leaders of the world – there are, strictly as yet, no world leaders – have assembled in Paris and offered their wisdom on how to save the climate of planet Earth from humans, in the sense at least of keeping it congenial for humankind, and maybe a few other life-forms.
