The ongoing climate conference in Paris must mark a new era in the depressing history of climate negotiations. The researchers and leadership of the University of Helsinki hope that the climate change conference in Paris will result in a breakthrough. After the lengthy talks, we need action, says the University’s Rector Jukka Kola. “We must not just go with the flow and lament how Finland’s contribution is marginal at best. Instead, we must set a moral example in these negotiations,” states physicist, Academy of Finland Professor Timo Vesala, who has served as the editor for the publication series of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
