The Paris Agreement

As you may know, approximately 130 countries gathered a few days ago (on Earth Day) at the United Nations to sign the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Whether this is an historic moment in the struggle against this continuing crisis, or too little too late, is open to debate.

Below are some links to articles and resources I’ve come across that might be interesting and useful as we consider this agreement. Have a look at these, and feel free to contribute others. I look forward to discussing these with you!
