Yesterday marked the start of a very crucial time – the beginning of Climate Week NYC [2]. World leaders are gathered TODAY, as we speak, at the United Nations to discuss what we, as the most influential nations on the Earth can do to solve the problem of global warming. The clock is ticking – there are only 15 working days until COP15 [3], the United Nations Climate Change Conference starting on December 7, so decisions need to be made quickly and effectively [3]. If you want to learn more about the issues we are facing, we highly recommend that you see the groundbreaking film The Age of Stupid [4] about a man who looks back from the future and laments what we as humans could have done to prevent the ravages of climate change.
