Paris COP21

Post  AlainK on Sat Nov 28, 2015 6:13 pm

I don't know if you've heard about it, but Paris will host a conference on global warming this weekend, "COP21".

Due to the recent events, security measures are drastic, and a lot of demonstrations were cancelled, some activists are under house arrest, etc.

What will come out of it, I'm afraid that as long as the main polluters don't take action, what we can do is a drop in the ocean, but a drop can make a whole difference maybe.

I'll continue to plant seeds, and trees, the Trees of Liberty that I will perhaps never taste, but that will bear fruit for the next generations. And listen to, and play music.

Hello, Alain!
Thanks for posting!
"Global warming" huh? And the omnipotent countries have the power to put a veto on anything which is against their interests...
That's crying for and laughing for Sad Sad

I loved the protest they did manage.

I wish them all the luck in the world.  But I'm afraid that demonstrations in the Paris Streets won't do much good changing the minds of the countries whose minds need the most changing.

Exactly what Jim has said above!
To my opinion, each and every one of us should really focus on changing one's own mind.
If every single mind has changed, the whole world can change.
Objective self-criticism we are all in need!
