On Tuesday, September 23 at 19:30 GMT: 

“No plan B as there is no planet B,” that’s the message from U.N. Secretary General  Ban Ki-moon. World leaders are just 15 months from signing the first major international policy on greenhouse emissions and in an effort to map out a solution the United Nations is holding a summit on climate change. However, there’s still very little being done to reduce the carbon footprint. Can the planet afford political theatre when it comes to solving global warming?
