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.

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?
