Facing the ‘climate cliff’

Here in the U.S., we’re obsessed with our fiscal cliff, but the end of the year also brings a deadline the entire world is all but certain to miss. The Kyoto Protocol is the last major international agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions and it is set to expire at the end of 2012 with no replacement. It is under that looming shadow that the United Nation’s yearly climate talks began this morning in Doha, Qatar.

 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
