A panel of experts who attended the Paris Climate talks will discuss how events unfolded, the decisions made (or not made) and their implications for Australia and the world. What are the prospects for keeping warming to 2°C? Where are we headed now in terms of climate change? How did hopes of a legally-binding agreement match the reality of what happened?
