If we want to see change from negotiations, we need to see fundamental changes in the way decisions are actually made.

Developed countries, when they put 30 per cent emissions reductions or less on the table are effectively putting death, displacement and devastation on the table. To call current targets enough, is to effectively announce that on this planet there are acceptable losses in those regions least responsible for causing climate change.

They are connecting these dots to a history of the fossil fuel industry and wealthy, developed nations having free reign pollute.
