As many of you know, we are now launching WECAN’s On-line Education and Advocacy Trainings on June 2nd, which are part of our 6-point plan as U.S. women come together and mobilize for climate action and justice in the lead up to the December 2015 United Nations Paris climate negotiations (COP21), the 2016 U.S. elections and beyond.

Hey, U.N.: Climate change and population are related...

[Translate] Shutterstock By Robert Engelman and Samuel Codjoe   GRIST On Sept. 22 and 23, the United Nations will host separate daylong conferences on two issues of incalculable importance to the future of humanity: population and climate change. Though the two meetings will take place just one day apart, neither is likely to refer to the other. And that will be a missed opportunity, because scientific research increasingly affirms that the two issues are linked in many ways.

[Translate] GRIST 26 Nov 2012 3:59 PM By Philip Bump jikatu Doha, Qatar. I wonder whether more Americans know what Qatar is or know that the U.N. has an annual convening to discuss climate change. Neither has much of an impact on our lives. And so it is with trepidation that I bother to relay that the aforementioned U.N. gathering is just getting underway in Doha, Qatar — a whole entirely equivalent to the sum of its parts. Here is an AP article about the meeting; here is one from the International Herald Tribune. The basic theme so far has been hope that the U.S. will actually step into a leadership role following Sandy and the reelection of Obama. If you’re wondering how likely that is, you can see this thing I wrote last week or...
