This evening, the Twin Cities-based Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) will host a discussion on what’s happening on the ground at the Cancún Climate Summit, or COP16. The UpTake will livestream the event from Minneapolis’ Midtown Global Market. We’ll hear from activists on the ground in Cancún while we celebrate our local grassroots organizing that has been building resilient communities and economic alternatives for decades — efforts that should be the building blocks for a just Minnesota response to climate change. You’ll remember that The UpTake was in Denmark last December to provide live coverage of the dramatic, but ultimately fractious and disappointing Copenhagen Climate Summit
Meanwhile, the New York Times reports today that the United States and China have narrowed their gap at the Climate talks.
