COP21 Begins!

Be sure to "like" greenmomster on Facebook!

The 21st U.N. Conference of Parties (COP 21), or the big climate change conference, begins today!  President Obama and other world leaders are meeting to chart a course for a cleaner-energy future.  Many experts say that this is really the last chance we have to avoid major and irreversible climate impacts.  (photo:

Work toward this conference has been going on for over a year.  The Washington Post reported on Sunday that:
  • more than 160 countries have put forward climate action plans,
  • eight of the largest world economies have pledged to double their renewable energy supply by 2030,
  • Brazil will be the first LDC to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas emissions,
  • and China is introducing a nation-wide cap-and-trade system to encourage green energy.
Be sure to follow the events in Paris, and don’t forget to write your elected representatives to say that you want to see action on climate change!
