The Paris talks on climate have begun. How bad is the problem? Could we come through ok? Could a tech break-through help? These are a few of the vital questions answered briefly, simply and directly in a great Q&A by The New York Times: Short Answers to Hard Question about Climate Change.
Of course, the most important question is whether something will come from the talks. I have to believe it will — first, because of mounting scientific evidence of the danger and second, because of growing support for action around the world, including here in the U.S. where a new poll shows two-thirds of Americans support a binding international agreement.
Keep hoping and pushing.
