Paris Power

The Paris agreement on climate change to keep global temperatures to no more than 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels and aim for 1.5, and to give developing countries billions to help them comply whilst still developing so they're not unfairly disadvantaged, is AN AWESOME MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD such that we haven't seen the likes of since we came together with Mandela to end apartheid in South Africa.

And I don't know if the goodwill surrounding the generous accord in Paris had anything to do with a shared desire to prove the power of good over evil and show the world that we won't be beaten down by evil doers, but I like to think it did, so that the senseless deaths and displacement of all those innocent people were not, as they say, entirely in vain.

Hopefully it's the first step of many in moving us towards a more cooperative, caring and wonderful world.
