Climate change affects everyone - and we are committed to covering the challenges and opportunities it presents across the planet. We have presence at every annual climate change Conference of the Parties through the UNFCCC Climate Change TV Studio, which provides for one-on-one video interviews with a wide array of stakeholders from civil society, intergovernmental organizations and party delegates. The studio provides a platform for discussing the effects of climate change, causes of global warming and possible solutions.
We believe climate change requires a binding global deal that is based on scientific evidence, harnesses the strengths of technology and private enterprise, evaluates energy sources impartially based on their environmental and social costs, and allows developing countries to pursue economic growth. RTCC is committed to communicating the facts of climate change responsibly and clearly, and supports initiatives to educate all generations of society to ensure a cleaner, greener future.
