Mixed bag

Monday morning

Business as usual? The Paris Climate Summit is history. Now it is time for action. I wonder what will happen today, as a measurable response to the agreement.

Looking into some sources about climate change I found this illustrated atlas of pollution: the world in carbon dioxide emissions. The chart is  free to download.

Here is my rendition of the 5 polluters.


Based on 2008 data published by the US Energy Administration.



Light and Shadow


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Today, the climate summit at Paris concluded. I am not sure what was achieved, an agreement? A non-binding agreement of 200 nations urging their governments by 2020 to do their best keeping the global temperature change below 2°C. At this point, I am reading summaries and commentaries from various news outlets. That leaves me with many questions.

What do you see: The silver lining, or a lot of dark shadows?
