Here at the Conference of Parties in Lima, I have been struck by the odd mixture of rah-rah optimism and doomsday pessimism permeating the corridors and negotiating rooms. It is an odd disjuncture, especially for a first-timer to the COP process. While everyone acknowledges that the cost of failure to reach a climate deal next year in Paris is so high as to be almost inconceivable, the possibility for failure remains a lurking reality.

This past weekend, I and Samantha Shattuck attended the COY10 (Conference of Youth) in Lima, Peru. COY is an annual event that gathers youth from all around the world to meet and exchange their knowledge and experiences about engaging their communities in better understanding, addressing, and adapting to adverse climate change issues at regional and global scales.
