21 Nov. 2013.  Make the rich change their ways to avoid a 2°C rise  The Guardian

John Vidal reports on a presentation I and my colleague Alice Bows-Larkin gave at the 2013 international climate change negotiations in Warsaw (COP19). The talk revealed how staying below 2°C demands a temporary but immediate and radical reduction in energy consumption by the relatively wealthy few. In 2013 holding to 2°C is principally as issue of consumption and equity, and not of population growth.
