This week’s climate conference in Paris is one of the biggest gatherings of world leaders in history.
Obama, Chinese Premier Xi, and even Putin appear aligned on the need to take action to tackle climate change now. Can you believe it? I’ve been in China on a bad smog day and it’s not nice. The air has taste.
But I do have some sympathy with Indian Prime Minister Modi:
“Climate change is not of our making” he said today, “It is the result of global warming that came from the prosperity and progress of an industrial age powered by fossil fuel.”
