Crash #COP27: Is the COP Rigged‪?‬ On the Frontlines

    • Society & Culture

Is the COP rigged? Why does it feel like there's a predetermined agenda filled with false solutions? Is it time for an alternative to the COP, led by the grassroots?

In this week's episode, Jill and Edgar break down the idea of "climate finance"—where the most wealthy nations fund climate mitigation and adaption projects in countries without the resources to implement these projects on their own—and discuss climate reparations as well. They also go into how science and expertise are often co-opted by those trying to sell false solutions and hoodwink frontline communities.

Recorded on November 15, 2022. Crash #COP27 is a special season of On the Frontlines.
