Big polluters have backdoor access to UNFCCC? 4.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
A new report by Corporate Accountability International: "Inside Job: Big Polluters’ lobbyists on the inside at the UNFCCC,” has exposed the dirty fossil fuel trade associations that are stalking the halls of the UN climate talks to undermine, weaken, and block progress. The report release comes just a week before governments convene in Bonn, Germany to continue negotiations on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Governments will, for the first time in history, officially discuss conflicts of interest at this convening. The meetings in Bonn will also be the first for the US’ Trump administration, whose State Department is now led by former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson. This has further raised the spectre of conflicts of interest in government and at the talks. “Right now hundreds of business trade associations have access to the climate talks, and many of them are funded by some of the world’s biggest polluters and climate change deniers,” said International Policy ...

China emphasises on commitment to Paris accord as Donald Trump undoes US climate policy 29.3.2017 DNA: Top News
China is still committed to the Paris climate change accord agreed in 2015, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump signed an order to dismantle Obama-era climate change regulations. Trump's main target is former president Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions from power plants - a key factor in the United States' ability to meet its commitments under the climate change accord reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said climate change was a common challenge for everyone and the Paris agreement was a landmark that came about with the hard work of the international community, including China and the United States. China is keen to be seen leading the way in reducing climate change which Trump has in the past dismissed as a "hoax". "We still uphold that all sides should move with the times, grasp the opportunities, fulfil their promises and earnestly take proactive steps to jointly push ...
