Representatives of the world’s nations are meeting in Bonn, Germany on November 6-11, 2017 for the 23rd annual “Conference of the Parties” (COP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). This annual conference is an opportunity for all of the participating nations to discuss their collective response to the global crisis of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming.
