John Knox quoted in The Daily Climate article on UN climate talks

On December 1, 2014, Marianne Lavelle authored an article on the UN climate talks that will begin in Lima today.  Ms. Lavelle notes that nations will weigh safeguards encouraged by the UN Clean Development Mechanism, and they will consider the UN Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation effort. John Knox, UN Independent Expert on human rights and the environment, was quoted as saying, "A human rights framework would help to make clear that governments don't leave behind their human rights obligations when they walk through the doors of the climate negotiations."
