(479) Canada Goes To Paris

rabble is expanding our Parliamentary Bureau and we need your help! Support us on Patreon today!

Keep Karl on Parl

Sam Gill is the CEO of ETindex (Environment Tracker) which helps investors avoid carbon risks in their portfolios, based out of the U.K. Sam talks to us about the overall market trends of carbon and carbon reporting, reductions strategies as well as his thoughts about the impact for people and markets from the upcoming COP21 meetings in Paris.

In the second section Emmay Mah and Daryn Caister talk more about COP and Paris, some challenges, some concerns (no marches!) but also some reasons to remain hopeful… not least of which being that if we can't have optimism, we've already lost.

So cheer up! :)

In the final section, we wrap up with some more specifics about Canada's contributions to the meetings, and in the last 5 minutes Daryn goes on a bit of a rant about geopolitics and the relations to our current issues regarding terrorism and climate.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
