Recently, 148 world leaders gathered in Paris for the COP 21 Climate Change Conference. There was little news to report other than President Barack Obama exceeding his speaker's time limit by 11 minutes and repeatedly being gonged to conclude.
The Summit showed concern for
Global Warming/Climate Change/Extreme Weather by nations voluntarily pledging to reduce CO2 by 2100. Even if these pledges were completely fulfilled, it would only reduce CO2 by 2% of the goal to prevent warming by 2% C, at a cost of $1 Trillion per annum.
Bjorn Lomborg wrote an Op/Ed in Forbes decrying the emphasis on "Climate Aid" during the Paris Summit. His Congressional testimony via satellite from the Paris Climate Change Conference underscored the paucity of the pledges and how aid money could be better used to conquer more immediate global health challenges, such as wiping out malaria or propagating clean water worldwide.
