‪#EarthToParis: This is NOT About Jack Black‬


November 30, 2015 16:47 EDT

Add your voice to those already demanding comprehensive measures to tackle climate change.

Leaders of 150 nations and some 40,000 delegates from 195 countries are gathering in Paris from November 30 to December 11 for the Conference of Parties (COP 21) to tackle climate change. Never before have we had a moment like this—with the awareness, the will and the technology to fight it.

After the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen Agreement and CO2 levels hitting new record highs in 2014, the goal today is a legally binding reduction in greenhouse gas emissions aimed at keeping global temperature below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. With the Kyoto Protocol due to expire in 2020, now is the time to come up with a new framework that both industrialized and developing countries can—and are willing to—implement.

Is this the turning point?
