The 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the UNFCCC was planned to take place from November 11-22, 2019 in Brazil. Upon election as President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro pulled Brazil out of hosting the event.

COP 25 was then scheduled to take place in Parque Bicentenario Cerrillos in Santiago de Chile, Chile from December 2-23 with a pre-sessional period from November 26 to December 1, 2019. Since mid-October, Chile has seen massive protests against the government’s neoliberal policies and high cost of living. Chilean President Sebastián Piñera canceled the summits to lessen the anger of protesters. The United Nations issued a statement that they were searching for alternative hosting options.

Greta Thunberg
Swedish activist Greta Thunberg says “we no longer have time to leave out the science,” as she gave a speech at the U.N. global climate conference in Madrid – accusing world leader of “clever accounting and creative PR” to avoid action on the climate crisis. Thunberg told the crowd that the world’s rapidly declining carbon budgets would be gone within eight years based on current emission levels. “How do you respond to the fact that basically nothing is being done about this without feeling the slightest bit of anger? And how do you communicate this without sounding alarmist? I would really like to know,” she said.
