GEORGE MONBIOT ON THE OUTCOME OF COP21
Shortly after the end of COP21, George Monbiot wrote this in The Guardian:

Excerpt from the article:

“Inside the narrow frame within which the talks have taken place, the draft agreement at the UN climate talks in Paris is a great success. The relief and self-congratulation with which the final text was greeted, acknowledges the failure at Copenhagen six years ago, where the negotiations ran wildly over time before collapsing. The Paris agreement is still awaiting formal adoption, but its aspirational limit of 1.5C of global warming, after the rejection of this demand for so many years, can be seen within this frame as a resounding victory. In this respect and others, the final text is stronger than most people anticipated.

Outside the frame it looks like something else. I doubt any of the negotiators believe that there will be no more than 1.5C of global warming as a result of these talks. As the preamble to the agreement acknowledges, even 2C, in view of the weak promises governments brought to Paris, is wildly ambitious.

Some important dilemmas are not discussed - let alone solved, and for different reasons:

Taboo:

For instance because it touches the lifestyle or core values of a great many people.

Disagreement:

A theme may have a tradition of splitting a population in pros and cons and making the parties deaf to the arguments of the opponents.

Financial Interests:

Many important debates seem to reflect financial interests rather than science and facts.
