Abstract

As the COP26 summit gathers pace, Tim Forsyth reflects on the role played by expert knowledge in shaping the potential outcomes of the summit. As a consensus begins to emerge around Net Zero targets and Natural Solutions to climate change, he suggests that an easy consensus based on these judgements, risks eliding complex social and political questions that pursuing these courses of action could lock-in.
