  • Descrição: Climate science has delivered a verdict on the state of our planet: We are now officially in the anthropocene. Humans have indisputably, and negatively, cast their imprint on the planet. The worst impact has been dated since the industrial revolution when global carbon dioxide levels, which alternated between 180 and 280 parts per million for almost eight millennia, have shown a sustained rise above the 300 mark. Clearly, the verdict calls for action at a global level. This action has been slow in coming, but the climate change conference at Paris last year, COP21, shows that leaders, civil society and businesses may have finally internalised the forecast. This issue of the India Quarterly focuses on the issues, the debates and the outcomes of COP21 as it moves to grappling with the rules for implementing the agreements made at Paris.
