The United Nations’ COP21 Climate Talks will take place as scheduled in Paris. Will the meetings unite global leaders around a common purpose to address terrorism in addition to environmental issues?
Despite the heartless, senseless attacks on Paris, the United Nations has confirmed that the COP21 climate talks will take place as scheduled next month. The meetings promise to unite nations around a central purpose—climate action. While the meetings will address one of the most urgent issues our time, I can’t help but wonder, will they foster enough goodwill and solidarity amongst global leaders to facilitate alignment around combating the growing threat of terrorism as well?
