"The Climate Paradox" ran in the Guardian on November 8, 2012, alongside an open letter to President Obama from Pa Ousman Jarju, lead organizer of the world's 48 "Least Developed Countries" (LDCs) in the UN climate negotiations. The animation illustrates research conducted by the Climate Development Lab at Brown, an Institute-supported group that has assisted the LDCs throughout the negotiations.
