The consequences of failure are absolutely catastrophic, but that didn’t prevent the previous twenty Conferences of Parties doing precisely that.As with any party, the skill is in knowing when to leave.

The poorer nations on earth must receive the support they desperately need from the rich, so they can prepare for the damage caused by climate change and invest in clean technologies to cut greenhouse gas emissions.This film is a cultural contribution to the global public atmosphere that now demands that these imperatives are achieved by our governments.
