Climate Change effects such as increased temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, rising sea levels, and more frequent weather-related disasters are already being experienced around the world.
In 2014, near the end of the warmest year on record, leaders representing over 190 countries set in Lima a plan to reach a global deal within the next year addressing climate change. This unique opportunity, being formed over the past two decades, is culminating in December 2015 at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP21) in Paris, where each nation will cement its commitment to reducing emissions.
If successful, the agreement will be a breakthrough in curbing the sources and effects of climate change and leading us to a prosperous low-carbon future. The momentum surrounding Paris provides a clear window for change for our future generations !
