Greenpeace International Representative Kumi Naidoo on the Failure of COP 18 (Video)



Kumi Naidoo from Greenpeace gives a brief at the end of the COP 18 negotiations in Doha. As he reviews in this video, the science is clear, we must act now! It will cost 60 billion to clean up after Hurricane Sandy but delegates are reluctant to pony up the same amount of money for climate change finance. Sandy is but one extreme weather event and these events will become much more frequent in a world ravaged by climate change.
