Copenhagen 2009 vs Paris 2015: Can the media influence the outcome of the UN's climate change talks? Leo Hickman, editor of CarbonBrief.org and former Guardian journalist, will compare media coverage of climate change in 2015 to 2009. Both years feature key UN summits aimed at securing a global climate deal but a lot has happened in between. Has the media's attitude to reporting - and commenting on - climate change moved on, too?

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one of the technologies that has the potential to mitigate the effects of climate change. In simple terms, CO2 can be captured from power stations or other large emission sources, transported via pipelines or ships and injected very deep underground into suitable geological storage formations where it will remain safe and secure and not contribute to global warming and climate change.
