Paris Terror Attacks Could Embolden World Leaders At UN Climate Change Summit

“Governments have been thinking about these issues of how climate change interacts with security for a while. But this may heighten the attention to it,” said Francesco Femia, co-founder and director of the Center for Climate & Security in Washington.

Negotiators from nearly 200 nations are still set to meet in Paris Nov. 30 for the launch of the United Nations-sponsored COP21 conference. French and U.N. officials confirmed this week the event would proceed as planned at Le Bourget, an exhibition center in the Parisian suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis where two suicide attacks and a bombing took place Friday night, killing three people. More than 132 people have died and hundreds are wounded after a series of coordinated attacks linked to the Islamic State group.
