Paris Climate Change Report

When: Fri., Jan. 29, 5:30 p.m. 2016

Also known as COP21, the climate conference produced an international agreement specifying commitments on emissions, adaptation, finance and transparency, as well as taking steps to promote carbon trading. While the agreement has been hailed for achieving progress in mediating climate change, the Movement Rights leaders assert that it is seriously flawed for, among other reasons, failing to consider indigenous rights and the rights of nature. Humboldt Community Rights is a local group working to get an initiative measure on the November 2016 ballot to ban use of the hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) method of oil and gas extraction within Humboldt County.
