Tuesday was the eighth day of the international climate talks in Paris, COP 21, said to be the most important negotiations in the UN's 20 years of conferencing on climate change. Or, as Desmond Tutu puts it, humanity's last chance salon. As world leaders, government lawyers, and negotiators try to hash out a deal limiting global greenhouse gas emissions to 2 degrees, we have our own lawyer on the ground, correspondent Dimitri Lascaris. He is on the ground reporting on events thus far. I'm sure you've seen a number of his reports. But today he's going to be talking about the draft agreement. And as you know, Dimitri is normally, when he's not reporting for us from Paris, he's a Canadian lawyer with the law firm Siskinds, and a board member of the Real News Network.
