Paris Talks

Reporters Chemnick and Kirkland preview E&E's COP 21 coverage

Beginning this week, E&E Publishing will have three reporters on the ground in Le Bourget, France, providing in-depth coverage of the United Nations' climate conference. ClimateWire reporter Jean Chemnick and EnergyWire deputy editor Joel Kirkland will head to Paris this week to join ClimateWire deputy editor Lisa Friedman for coverage of all aspects of the negotiations, side events and delegations. During today's OnPoint, Chemnick and Kirkland discuss the significance of Bill Gates' launch this week of the largest public-private clean energy research and development partnership. They also discuss the players they'll be watching most closely and the potential for an unfavorable outcome to the negotiations.
