Neither the Kyoto Protocol nor the Copenhagen Agreement seem to have been very much a success in global climate policy. Therefore, policy-makers have been putting much hope on the Paris Agreement that was agreed in November 2015. U.S. president Donald J. Trump recently announced that the United States intend to withdraw from the Paris Agreement which was globally considered a heavy set-back for efforts to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. Amid this difficult situation, we are delighted to invite you to our final energy and climate talk in 2017.
