The United Nations is working with the French government towards securing a legally binding global climate agreement to curb carbon emissions, in
Paris, at the UNFCCC COP 21 climate change conference in December 2015.
Would be great with a thread about the goals, since it seems different countries different goals.
a reply to: rajasI think that any agreement that is made won't prevent the climate heating up. Or eventually towards the next
great ice age. The planet doesn't do contracts. ?savvy. Most of the data that is publicized are not entirely misleading.
Humans can't cut down so many forests, put so much chemical residue into the atmosphere, and decimate life in the oceans to such a degree and not
expect the Earth's climate to react. I wish the world's leaders much success in this conference, and that their combined actions protect and start to
heal the damaged environment. If they wanted to get serious about it, though, they'd go to the heart of the problem: mankind's insistence on eating
"meat", which then leads directly to the aforementioned forest and ocean destructions. Without including diet along with emissions and other causes of
environmental change the conference will fail to fully address the problems mankind has brought upon itself.

because: (no reason given)
Damn, it's sad to see that the Oil & Gas Industry is winning the propaganda war with their unlimited war chest. All you gotta do is take a look around
and see that things aren't what they seem. Oh well. These world leaders will make a few moves in the right direction, but because of the public
sentiment that this is a hoax, they won't do nearly enough...and in the end, well, the end!
