The Paris Climate Agreement – A New Approach for International Collaboration on Climate Change
Speaker: Dr. Neil Leary, Director of the Center for Sustainability Education, Dickinson College
Date & Time:  Friday, February 12, 2016, 1:003:00 pm.
Location: United States Army Heritage and Education Center, 950 Soldiers Drive, Carlisle
 
One hundred and ninety-five nations agreed a new treaty in Paris on December 12, 2015 that takes a fundamentally different approach from past agreements for motivating international collaboration on climate change. The new approach is built upon voluntary national commitments, commitments that are not binding in international law, and relies on a transparent reporting and review process to promote compliance. Dr. Neil Leary, Director of Dickinson College’s Center for Sustainability Education, will compare the Paris Agreement with previous climate agreements and consider whether it lays a foundation that is up to the enormous challenge of limiting climate change. Dr. Leary will also discuss the evidence for human caused climate change, its human and environmental consequences, the need for international and transnational cooperation, and US options and strategies. 
 
This presentation is part of the Great Decisions discussion series sponsored by the United States Army War College. It is free and open to all military and the civilian community.
