WHC -- round 1
As this article explains, the World Heritage Convention, set up in 1972 to "preserve the world's natural and scenic areas", requires all countries to pass listed sites intact to future generations.
Conservationists argue that this will not happen unless urgent action is taken to cut emissions of greenhouse gas emissions. But government delegates from the US, Australia and Canada are reported to have to led a rejection of the call.
A rejection is surely not a surprise. What next? As noted in several places including here and here, it may still be early days in the battles concerning scientific, legal and public opinion.
