Later this morning Sir David King the British Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative for Climate Change of will be giving a keynote at a forum sustainability and green growth.Tonight he talks to young Malaysians about his concerns about climate change. What would have otherwise been a welcomed intervention raised eye-brows among some because a flyer advertising the evening talk notes seemed to diminish Malaysia’s efforts, noting that our emission levels were 80% of the UK’s and rising. Is this just a storm in a teacup or does it signal underlying dynamics of climate change politics?
Hailed as the answer to climate change in 1997, the Kyoto Protocol has failed in its goal to curb global carbon emission. In the lead up to this November’s United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, we speak to Dr. Gary Theseira, Deputy Undersecretary at the Environmental Management & Climate Change Division, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Malaysia, about the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and the politics of climate change.
