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.

As government and industry representative gather in Bonn for COP23, now is a good time for those of us who aren’t endowed with great political power or vast material wealth to reflect on the climate crisis and talk to each other about what we’re going to do about it.
