Environmentalists discuss climate change

As climate change negotiations begin in Doha, environmentalists and the online community share their hopes and fears.

    With global carbon dioxide emissions rising 3 per cent in 2011, and the Kyoto Protocol set to expire at the end of 2012, environmentalists say climate change negotiations in Doha, Qatar from November 26- December 7 are more important than ever.

    Most scientists believe that humans must keep global temperature rises below 2 degree Celsius to avoid catastrophic climate change. But if current trends continue, that goal will be impossible.

    Al Jazeera assembled a panel of leading environmentalists who discussed in a Google Hangout the issues facing governments, companies, non-governmental organisations and policy makers during the COP18 negotiations.
