President Barack Obama joined world leaders at the UN climate summit–officially called the 21st Congress of the Parties for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP 21–in Paris this week, and promised to work for an “ambitious” agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. But climate justice activists who are trying to put forward an alternative vision–in spite of a ban on protests by the French government after the November 13 terror attacks–say that much more is needed than the leaders of the world’s most powerful governments are willing to consider.

Ian Angus is a Canadian activist, editor of the ecosocialist journal Climate and Capitalism and co-author of Too Many People? Population, Immigration, and the Environmental Crisis. He talked to Phil Gasper about what to expect from the Paris summit and what the climate justice movement will need to take up next.
