Did the Climate Change in Paris? What's Next?     A Conversation with                         Mark Hertsgaard and Local Activists

COP21 was a landmark event for the climate.

Was a Red Line Drawn in Paris . .  for America, too?

For the first time, nations around the world agreed that we need aggressive goals. And with their inadequate commitments so far, it has further highlighted the gaping chasm between where we need to go and where we’re headed.

What actually happened inside?  Did all the countries really commit to the right goals or was it political gamesmanship?  Was America in the forefront? 

Was civil society represented or kept quiet?

Why Are These Shoes Empty in Paris?

What does all of it mean for climate activism going forward?  What are the opportunities for 2016? What are the false solutions that we may start hearing about? 

And what can each of us be doing in the following months to have the greatest impact on the climate crisis?
