Was Paris enough? Leeds public event fuels debate
Almost 400 people attended a CCCEP public debate at the University of Leeds to discuss the impact of the Paris climate agreement. The audience heard presentations from policy and science experts Andy Gouldson, John Barrett, Piers Forster and Harriet Thew before a lively discussion which threw up many questions about the efficacy and enforcement of the historic December 2015 agreement. The February 3 event, called ‘Unpacking the Paris Agreement: Is it enough to limit dangerous climate change?’, was co-hosted by the Yorkshire Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society and the Priestley International Centre for Climate.
