The planet is warming rapidly and we’ve already seen its effects. Glaciers are melting, animal migration patterns are changing, and islands are disappearing. Climate change is not some far off phenomenon; it is happening now. Unfortunately, the planet does not have many options. It is projected that the earth will warm to around 37.4 degrees F (3 degrees C) by 2030, and by then we can’t turn back.

Climate change has been on the United Nation’s agenda for over 30 years. The Kyoto Protocol was the first such agreement between nations to assign country-by-country reductions of GHG emissions. In December 2015, all nations were brought together at COP21 in Paris to undertake the ambitious efforts to combat climate change. The conference negotiated the Paris Agreement, a global agreement on the reduction of climate change. While all 195 nations signed off on these goals for 2030, is it an Overly Optimistic Pledge? Find out as we explore this topic through this downloadable article.
