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.

The real outcomes are likely to commit us to levels of climate breakdown that will be dangerous to all and lethal to some.

The UN climate process has focused entirely on the consumption of fossil fuels, while ignoring their production.
