Thank you Paris Climate delegates

“Whew, that was a close call.”

Whew, that was a close call. By now the fact that humans imperiled our planet by causing global climate change from our unbridled burning of fossil fuels might seem like a distant and impossible memory. But it’s true. We really did. And we have the strong, resourceful, and forward-looking delegates to the 2015 Paris Climate Talks to thank for taking the difficult step of standing up and saying that we MUST end our addiction to fossil fuels to save our planet. Their strict, clear, and comprehensive limits on carbon emissions world-wide turned us around. So let’s honor them today – and forever.
