Why should you care about the Paris talks?

This is a simple guide to the Paris climate change talks being held, November 29th to December 12th, why they matter and why you should care. The preliminary national plans that have been submitted to the United Nations show that without even more drastic cuts to greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), we will exceed the 2 dgree limit recommended by the International Panel on Climate Change to 2.7 degrees. The Guardian also has an informative climate change series in which you may be interested. As I just blogged, the more informed we all are, at all levels of society, the more we can demand evidence-based decision-making by our elected officials going into the Paris climate talks--to demand bold, decisive and informed climate targets for our future sustainability.
