Blog: Climate Change Conference Paris
One of the hardest parts of writing about global warming—and there are lots and lots of hard parts—is simply keeping up with the news. Much of it comes in short newsy bits, worth knowing but difficult to write about as an individual full post. Since the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference is being held in Paris this week, I’m posting a weeklong series of shorter articles about global warming and its fallout. Here are Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. And read all of Slate’s coverage of the Paris climate talks here.
After all the bad climate news this week, it’s easy to despair. Still, there is hope. It’s not too late to change minds. Some Republicans have changed theirs, and if they can—when it’s practically a GOP plank to deny the science—then it’s possible for everyone.
