Summary
"Can the global community prevent dangerous climate change? This was the mission it set itself at the 1992 Earth Summit, and this was the concern that prompted 100,000 demonstrators to turn out in the streets of New York in September 2014, when the UN secretary-general convened a global climate summit. Climate Diplomacy from Rio to Paris assesses the dramatic twenty-five -year effort to arrive at a consensus about how to contain global warming and concludes with an on-the-spot analysis of the December 2015 Paris accords."--Page 4 of cover
