Despite threatening for two years now, the US has yet to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. So no matter your stance, it behooves you to know what happened at the most recent COP24 climate summit in Katowice, Poland. The Guardian article below very succinctly sums up the summit – and more background can be found here in this WaPo piece. Of particular note, attendees established the technical ‘rulebook’ for measuring and reporting emissions and reductions. This is key to holding members to their climate commitments from Paris for 2020 and beyond.
It’s a short, non-technical, very friendly article so don’t be threatened by climate doom and gloom! Climate action is R.A.D.
