In case you haven't noticed , there is another chance for the world leaders to get to grips with climate change. What this press notice ( below) doesn't say is that we all must decide how we are going to stop ruining our planet!
On a more cheerful note , I took this photo in our meadow in June. A furry caterpillar ( no idea what species it is!) on a newly flowering wild Pyramidal Orchid
Now for the news!
UN Climate Summit 2014
Climate change is not a far-off problem. It is happening now and is having very real consequences on people’s lives. Climate change is disrupting national economies, costing us dearly today and even more tomorrow. But there is a growing recognition that affordable, scalable solutions are available now that will enable us all to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies.
There is a sense that change is in the air. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders, from government, finance, business, and civil society to Climate Summit 2014 this 23 September to galvanize and catalyze climate action. He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilize political will for a meaningful legal agreement in 2015. Climate Summit 2014 provides a unique opportunity for leaders to champion an ambitious vision, anchored in action that will enable a meaningful global agreement in 2015.
