Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!ia at the United Nations Climate Change Conference, held in Lima, Peru, which runs through Dec. 1 to 12, 2014 (though conference itself has been going on since Dec. 1). Conference delegates are continuing negotiations toward a global climate agreement, with goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius above current levels.
This is the sixth year that Democracy Now! has reported live from the U.N. climate summit. The news show has also attended the 2010 World Peoples' Summit on Climate Change in Bolivia and the 2012 Rio+20 Earth Summit.
Democracy Now! airs every morning from 8 to 9 a.m. ET and will devote the entire hour of each day's show Dec. 8 through Dec. 12 to covering the U.N. climate summit and environmental issues specific to Peru and Latin America. After the live show ends at 9 a.m., the one-hour show will air on repeat throughout the rest of the day and night until the following morning at 7:45 a.m.
Check out the action in Peru courtesy of Democracy Now! and the Center for Biological Diversity.
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! will be interviewing organizers and climate march attendees live from the streets in Manhattan via a satellite truck. We also anticipate showing live coverage from other actions around the world coming in from livestreams provided by the march organizers. It should be an exciting and interesting broadcast.
Watch it from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 21 — and look for the Center!
